ArtistsMax Emanuel Cencic
This Decca Classics release is the first ever complete recording of Arminio, with only one previous incomplete performance available.
An heroic story, based on historical events occurring on the Germanic fringes of the Roman Empire, Arminio is now being revived in a new and ravishing production by Parnassus Arts under their artistic director Max Emanuel Cencic: a combination with an unequalled track record in Handelian opera seria, as witnessed by their multiple-award-winning staging and recording of Alessandro (from 2012 to date).
Countertenor Max Emanuel Cencic takes the title role of Arminio surrounded by a superb cast featuring Layla Claire (Tusnelda), Ruxandra Donose (Ramise), Vince Yi (Sigismondo), Juan Sancho (Varo), Xavier Sabata (Tullio) and Petros Magoulas (Segeste).
Joined by the dynamic Armonia Atenea under the baton of George Petrou, Arminio is sure to join a fast-growing collection of acclaimed Baroque opera recordings.
In recent years Max Emanuel Cencic has become recognised as one of the world’s supreme countertenors: “Mr. Cencic is blessed with the finest countertenor voice of our day” (Opernwelt).
