Curiously, Rossini has composed two roles for a castrato: to Alceo in the cantata Il vero omaggio, and that of Arsaces in Aureliano in Palmira, both for Giambattista Velluti, the last castrato internationally renowned opera . Against the Argentine tenor Franco Fagioli has deliberately given up these roles to this album Rossini, preferring to focus on transvestites roles that address sexual ambiguity from another angle. In operas "serious" by Rossini, rarely given today, there are many male characters whose roles were written for singers. Already, in the Baroque era, the role of the "primo uomo" could be entrusted to a woman if we did not have the proper castrato.

"Die Sängerinnen und Sänger haben allesamt sehr intensiv an den Koloraturen gearbeitet und sind den teils horrenden Schwierigkeiten der Arien gut gewachsen … Außerdem sind die Rezitative mit hohem Konversationstempo und fantasievoller Generalbass-Improvisation umgesetzt." ~FonoForum

Cencic gehört unbestritten zu den führenden Countertenören im weltweiten Music Business. Eben wurde seine Decca-Aufnahme von Händels Alessandro erneut mit einem renommierten internationalen Musikpreis ausgezeichnet. Der Spezialist für virtuosen Barockgesang ist vor allem für seine Interpretationen der Werke von Vivaldi und Händel bekannt, leistet aber auch immer wieder Pionierarbeit im Aufspüren neuer Partituren und der Wiederentdeckung vergessener Komponisten und Werke. Sein aktuelles Album widmet sich daher auch einem weniger bekannten deutschen Komponisten, Johann Adolf Hasse, der zu seiner Zeit eine anerkannte Größe im europäischen Musikbetrieb darstellte – weit über seine Geburtsstadt bei Hamburg hinaus. Auf dem Album Rokoko stellt Cencic virtuose Arien aus Opern von Hasse in den Mittelpunkt und leistet damit einen entscheidenden Beitrag zur Rehabilitierung und Neubewertung dieses noch immer weithin unterschätzten Komponisten..

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)

‘The 5 Countertenors’ draws together five of the world’s most renowned countertenors, who bring the rich world of baroque opera to life.
Described in their heyday as “beyond all creatures upon earth.” (William Congreve, 1700), countertenors are once again firmly established on concert platforms, opera stages, the covers of music magazines - and the subjects of heated on-line debate and of fan-pages on social media.
These world-class performers showcase the expressive variety of this unique genre. This album also celebrates the individuality of each singer’s voice and in turn the art of the countertenor. The countertenors are accompanied by the brilliant, ECHO-Klassik winning baroque group, Armonia Atenea, under George Petrou.
