“Artaxerse, uncle of Oronte, imperturbable ruler of Persia, was performed by the bass Federico Sacchi with noble phrasing and relevant stage presence. Cesti wrote for Artaxerse a big meditative monologue in which was noticeable Sacchi’s familiarity with the Lieder repertoire”.
(Artaxerse, zio di Oronte, sovrano reggente d’una Persia con capitale Babilonia e imperturbabile nel suo non capire nulla di quel che succede, è stato il basso Federico Sacchi, di nobile fraseggio e adeguata presenza scenica. Cesti affida ad Artaxerse, come già ricordato, una grande scena solistica di meditazione in cui s’è potuta anche apprezzare la familiarità di Sacchi con il repertorio liederistico.)
