Album Summary

>Vinci, Leonardo : Catone in Utica, opera
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Star countertenor Max Emanuel Cencic steps into new musical territory with the world premiere recording of Catone in Utica by Leonardo Vinci, a forgotten genius of Italian opera. The opera tells a powerful tale of Julius Caesar's defeat of the Republican forces led by Marcus Porcius Cato in 46BC, exploring the eternal themes of love, duty and honor. Featuring five countertenors along with conductor Riccardo Minasi who leads il pomo d'oro.

Gramophone Magazine, July 2015
There is no disputing everyone's complete dedication to the cause. Cencic's firm yet sensitively balanced singing conveys the pathos of Arbace's numerous expressions of unrequited love...Sancho's beefy tenor aptly characterises Cato's scepticism about reaching a diplomatic resolution...Il Pomo d'Oro, directed by Riccardo Minasi, vividly characterise each scene with theatrical zest.

Financial Times, 26th June 2015
Played with unflagging energy.
