Notes & Reviews:

'Cosi fan tutte' is Mozart's third opera to a Da Ponte libretto. It is in 'opera buffa' style and has only six characters, two couples and an elderly philosopher and a trusted maid. The conductor, Sir Charles Mackerras, has spent many years researching performance practice of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and is a noted authority on Mozart's operas. He writes of this recording, 'it is indeed a pleasure having the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment lending its expertise in tonal colour, phrasing and rhythmic impulse to Mozart's wonderful score I have chosen to record this English version of 'Cosi fan tutte' with the traditional cuts, thus making it closer to a staged performance'.
