Notes & Reviews:

"Solti conducts an affectionate account, with only an occasional sign of haste (the quintet in which the two pairs of lovers first confront each other; the second-act serenade), and he is greatly helped by fine playing from the Chamber Orchestra of Europe. The performance is a public one, and some may feel the dramatic flow impeded by the intervening applause, but all in all, this must be one of the finest recordings of Mozart’s miraculous score available." -BBC

Renee Fleming (Fiordiligi), Anne Sofie von Otter (Dorabella), Adelina Scarabelli (Despina), Frank Lopardo (Ferrando), Olaf Bar (Guglielmo), Michele Pertusi (Don Alfonso)
Chamber Orchestra of Europe, Georg Solti

Penguin Guide
Solti takes a fast and light approach which yet has none of his old fierceness. Much is owed to the superb playing of the Chamber Orchestra of Europe. [Fleming] sings with a firm, full voice that is yet brilliant and flexible... Altogether Solti's finest Mozart recording, outshining even his Figaro.

Gramophone Magazine
Von Otter knows how to extract the most in vivid characterization from her arias and capitulates to Guglielmo's advances with real feeling... Frank Lopardo is a paragon of a Ferrando, possibly the finest of all on disc, partly because his supple tenor encompasses both the lyrical and heroic... If you don't mind Solti's ultra-disciplined conducting and the large scale of the performance, you'll find much to enjoy in the singing, and a real sense of fun
