- Benjamin Bayl (Fortepiano)
Notes & Reviews:
The second of DG's series of seven Mozart operas conducted by Yannick Nézet-Séguin, and initiated by Rolando Villazón, in collaboration with Festspielhaus Baden-Baden, Universal Music Arts & Entertainment and Rolex. This Così fan tutte enchanted the Baden-Baden Festspielhaus audience when recorded in concert in 2012, with Nézet-Séguin inspiring his stellar cast to feats of vocal derring-do.
An enthusiastic advocate of Mozart's music, Rolando Villazón takes on the lead tenor role. Das Opernglas hailed his debut as Ferrando, calling him "ideal for the role - we have not heard a more beautiful, better sung and deeper felt 'Un aura amorosa' in a long time". Starring a thrilling cast of both young and experienced Mozart opera stars including accomplished soprano Mojca Erdmann as Despina, acclaimed Mozartian soprano Miah Persson and prizewinning young American mezzo Angela Brower as the emotionally manipulated sisters Fiordiligi and Dorabella. Also joining this crème-de-la-crème cast are distinguished Mozart bass-baritone Adam Plachetka as Guglielmo and Italian buffo baritone Alessandro Corbelli as Alfonso. Youthful exuberance tempered by depth of insight make this a rare Così, a must for even the most seasoned opera lover.
The Don Giovanni production, which was released as first of the series, has received RAVE reviews: "... one of the best recordings... " The Daily TelegraphNotes & Reviews:
