Notes & Reviews:

After many years this famed world premiere recording of Hasse's 1731 opera is back and available for international sale. With a well-known cast including Emma Kirkby, Agnes Mellon, Derek Lee Ragin and conductor William Christie, this recording is a "must" for all baroque opera lovers.

CD Review
Countertenor Derek Lee Ragin clearly enjoying himself in one of several brilliant 'rage arias'

Opera News
Capriccio's reissue of WDR Köln's 1986 recording of Cleofide brings back the good old days of Baroque opera, when conductors, obviously fascinated by the music, allowed well-chosen singers some leeway for personal expression and characterization. With legendary producer Klaus Neumann in charge, William Christie explores each piece with what sounds like genuine excitement, and the Cappella Coloniensis plays Hasse's tuneful and elegant music, in the "galant" style associated with Pergolesi and other composers of the 1730s, with verve and lyrical beauty.

American Record Guide
Countertenors and sopranos... sing very well indeed. The countless recitatives even sound fresh and emotional. The harpsichord tinkles along relentlessly, throwing handfuls of twinkling light on to the recitatives.

MusicWeb International
If you like Handel's operas, and want to discover an unjustly forgotten composer, Cleofide is worth checking out. It is an entertaining opera - though long; just ignore the recitatives - full of delightful, happy music, performed by excellent musicians and soloists.
