Notes & Reviews:

Classical Opera continue their series of Mozart Operas on Signum with Mozart's Mitridate, re di Ponto, K. 87 (74a). Mozart's first great operatic success premie`red at the Teatro Regio Ducale in Milan on 26 Dec 1770, marking the culmination of Mozart's first trip to Italy. The work received an initial twenty-two performance run - sure proof of success - and news of this astonishing youthful work spread quickly. As well as the complete opera, this 4CD set includes a bonus disc featuring original versions of a number of arias from the opera that Mozart subsequently changed in the final version.

Opera, November 2014
This performance under Ian Page is a first-rate ensemble effort in an opera that carries no passengers when it comes to vocal pyrotechnics ... This splendid achievement... is given added documentary value by the inclusion of a fourth CD containing the original versions of eight arias the teenage Mozart changed at the behest of his cast.

Gramophone Magazine, November 2014
Banks dispatches the fiendish demands of the [title-]role with impressive security and vividness...A consistent cast without any weak links. Classical Opera's achievement is at least the equal of any version hitherto in the opera's distinguished discography.

The Telegraph, 17th November 2014
This excellent recording is probably the one that Mozart completists will want to have: it contains not only unflaggingly stylish virtuosic singing...but also a useful compendium of seven previously unrecorded arias and a duet...The supporting soloists are also first rate, and Ian Page and the Orchestra of the Classical Opera company provide exemplary accompaniment throughout.

BBC Music Magazine, Christmas 2014
Banks delivers a dazzlingly authoritative account of the title role...A front-rank lighter-weight Rossini tenor, he may not possess the bronzed tones of Bruce Ford...but from the start he throws off notes and words with such fearless hauteur that all comparisons soon cease.

Financial Times, 13th December 2014
Classical Opera's recording has plenty of vitality and a cast who romp through their virtuoso arias.

Katherine Cooper, Presto Classical, December 2014
Ian Page's ongoing, broadly chronological series of the complete Mozart operas has yielded some real treasure so far in terms of the early works, and there's knock-out vocal virtuosity from all concerned here - particularly Barry Banks as the eponymous ruler and Miah Persson as the beleaguered Aspasia.

Opera Now, January 2015
The arias are exciting and Ian Page's conducting of the Orchestra of Classical Opera provides both momentum and detail... His cast is up to the vocal demands, which are bravura in the extreme.

American Record Guide, March/April 2015
This recording is an excellent addition to the Mozart catalog. It comes with complete text and a good synopsis. Ian Page, the excellent conductor, has contributed an essay about the opera as well as an analysis of the original arias and their replacements.
