Siroe
J. A. Hasse

The music of Johann Adolf Hasse (1699-1783), perhaps more than that of any other composer, typified the refined, aristocratic taste of the last decades of the European ancien régime. During his lifetime he was famous throughout Europe – the nineteenth-century French musicologist Fétis remarked: “… few artists had such success, or greater renown than Hasse. Few are so forgotten now.” Fortunately, during the last few years this situation has begun to change. It is clear to modern ears that Hasse’s fine music is ripe for re-discovery. Renowned above all for his gifts as a melodist, in Siroe Hasse offers a feast of rare vocal delights in the telling of a vivid story of passion, jealousy and intrigue.
