Notes & Reviews:

Takes the listener on a chronological journey through Mozart's operatic canon, featuring an aria or ensemble from fifteen of his operas. Selected for Gramophone magazine's annual Critics Choice, 2007.

BBC Music Magazine, September 2014
Performed with skill and grace under the able direction of Ian Page.

Opera Now
Leese makes a particular hit of her aria from Lucio Silla, her tone even and clean, yet with a sensuous edge...In 'Ruhe sanft' from Zaïde, Susan Gritton's sweet voice carries through the phrases with elegance and delicacy but without tiptoeing...Matthew Rose brings immediate trenchancy to arias from Bastien und Bastienne and Figaro.

Sunday Times, 20th April 2014
Page and his young musicians have a real feeling for Mozart, and the excerpts...are artfully chosen to make the best case for early Mozart. Even so, the emotional intensity of the great Idomeneo quartet is a bombshell.
