About

One of Handel’s rarer operas, Arminio, set at the time of the Roman Empire, was first performed in 1737. “On the evidence of this very fine recording”, said Gramophone when this performance first appeared, “it can stand among the best of the Handel operas, full of beautiful and imaginative things.”

Conducting a cast led by the virtuosic Vivica Genaux in the title role – composed for the castrato Domenico Annibali – is the renowned Handel specialist Alan Curtis.
