First recording after more than twenty years Il pomo d'oro’s fourth complete opera recording (after Tamerlano, Catone in Utica, Partenope), and first recording collaboration with Greek conductor George Petrou, a true specialist in Handel’s operas. Ottone (HWV15) was one of Handel’s most successful and popular operas - the more astonishing that the only two recordings so far date from 1992

We are delighted to announce the first collaboration with the Greek conductor George Petrou - a true specialist in Baroque opera and particularly in Handel’s operas. His complete opera recordings include Handel’s Giulio Cesare, Arianna in Creta, Alessandro, Tamerlano, as well as Il Trionfo di Clelia by Gluck, Hasse’s Siroe, the ballet Die Geschöpfe des Prometheus by Beethoven and
