For the festivities marking the Pergolesis tercentenary in his native Jesi, Ignacio García created a new staging of the imperial drama Adriano in Siria. His staging in Jesis exquisite 18th-century Teatro Comunale Pergolesi includes the delightful comic intermezzo Livietta e Tracollo, thus following the precedent set at the premiere in 1734. A fine Italian cast and the distinguished Accademia Bizantina are led by the Accademias director, Ottavio Dantone.
"Realised with vibrant, breathtaking musicanship." (BBC Music Magazine)
"This is an exceptionally fine production that offers a great deal of integrity and fascination." (Gramophone)
"This is the most impressive and engaging product of Pergolesi's anniversary year I've heard so far." (International Record Review)
