Andrea Marcon and La Cetra Barockorchester & Vokalensemble Basel sparkle in this new release of Handel's forgotten masterpiece Parnasso in testa, recorded shortly before their hugely successful Netherlands premiere of the opera in November 2016. Handel’s sumptuous work from 1734 celebrates the marriage of Princess Anne and Prince William of Orange. It's packed with breathtaking arias, duets and choruses, all written with verve, drama and Handel’s sense of occasion. The renowned Baroque specialist Andrea Marcon gives it the attention it deserves with an outstanding vocal cast around his period-instrument group La Cetra.
