Notes & Reviews:

Decca Classics is proud to release the first ever complete recording of Arminio, Handel's opera of political intrigue and dynastic struggle. First staged at the Theatre Royal, Covent Garden in January 1737, this first-rate opera is brought to life by a superb cast led by Max Emanuel Cencic and the period-instrument players of Armonia Atenea directed by George Petrou. Other cast members include Ruxandra Dunose, Vince Yi, Juan Sancho, Xavier Sabata and Petros Magoulas.

Cencic makes the most of [the writing], sustaining a rich, beautifully rounded tone through even the most athletic numbers... his voice offers a lovely middle ground between Xavier Sabata's darker tone as Tullio and Vince Yi's feminine, silvery-bright Sigismondo... the real surprises here are Juan Sancho's Varo and Petros Magoulas's Segeste... on balance, this Arminio is probably now the best out there.
