Album Summary

>Handel, George Frideric : Siroe
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Betrayal, revenge, inheritance conflicts and forbidden love at the Persian court – in 1728 this explosive mixture inspired Handel to compose the opera Siroe, Re di Persia, one of his last compositions for the Royal Academy of Music at the King's Theatre. Handel based his work on the libretto by the famous poet Pietro Metastasio. In its first season Siroe was performed on eighteen successive evenings, but it was never subsequently revived in Handel's lifetime. This recording from the Göttingen Festival features a top-rank cast performing under the musical direction of Laurence Cummings.

The Guardian, 12th June 2014
Anna Dennis as Emira is very fine.

Early Music Review, June 2014
The arias are without exception quite stunning and it is surprisingly fresh and has moments of real beauty and imagination.

Gramophone Magazine, January 2015
The performance is energetic and committed. Cummings has an ability to push the momentum through from recitative to aria and back again with naturalness and urgency, so that all seems of a piece. Soprano Anna Dennis and Aleksandra Zamojska are the most impressive cast members.
