Notes and Editorial Reviews
Decca presents a new recording of Handel’s Ottone, re di Germania starring “the finest countertenor voice of our day” (Opernwelt) Max Emanuel Cencic and a superb cast under the baton of George Petrou with Il Pomo d’Oro. Premiered in London in 1723, Ottone was one of Handel’s most successful operas during his lifetime. This rare recording breathes new life into one of the master’s greatest works and features three bonus arias performed in the 1726 revival.
