ArtistsMax Emanuel Cencic
The world-premiere recording of Siroe re di Persia by Johann Adolf Hasse, whose music encapsulates the refined aristocratic cultural tastes of the European Ancien Régime.
Offering true musical fireworks and delights, Siroe is led by Max Cencic in the title role with the vital orchestra of Armonia Atenea and their high-powered conductor George Petrou - the same vibrant partnership which saw their first album on Decca, Handel’s 'Alessandro', win a clutch of top awards.
Renowned for his gifts as a melodist, Hasse offers in Siroe a feast of rare vocal delights in the telling of a vivid story of passion, jealousy and intrigue.
Cencic is supported by a truly stunning cast, with Decca’s award-winning Julia Lezhneva, countertenor Franco Fagioli, Juan Sancho, Mary-Ellen Nesi and Lauren Snouffer.
Remarkably famous during his lifetime, the composer Hasse was acclaimed by his contemporaries as one of the most important artists of the 18th Century - the greatest singers of the time clamoured to perform in his operas.
Max Cencic and Parnassus Arts’ new stage production of Siroe premiered in June 2014 at Athens’ Megaron to enthusiastic acclaim from audience and critics alike.
