Programme Note

Max Emanuel Cencic, recognised worldwide as one of today’s greatest countertenors, has developed the power of expression and technique required to project the spectacular virtuosity of Baroque opera.

The Croatian-born artist began singing with the Vienna Boys’ Choir and launched his solo career as a male soprano in the early 1990s. Since converting to countertenor, Cencic has delivered breathtaking performances of everything from Handel heroes to works by Hasse, Vinci and Vivaldi. His entrepreneurial work to revive rarely heard operas has attracted critical acclaim and a major new recording deal with Decca.

Cencic and Il Pomo d’Oro come to Wigmore Hall, fresh from their recent concert tour of Handel’s Tamerlano, with a programme of early 18th-century operatic showpieces and instrumental works.
