Notes & Reviews:
Opera music's revolutionaries, Teodor Currentzis and MusicAeterna, the orchestra he created, follow up their acclaimed release of Le Nozze de Figaro with a new recording of Mozart: Cosí Fan Tutte. Le Nozze de Figaro won Germany's ECHO prize for Opera Recording of the Year. Like Figaro, Cosí Fan Tutte, the second release of Currentzis' recordings of all three Da Ponte Mozart operas, is a no-compromise studio recording and the fruit of a unique way of living and working which Currentzis has established in Perm, Russia, a remote, formerly closed city.
The recording of Cosí Fan Tutti represents an unprecedented commitment by Currentzis and MusicAeterna in terms of preparation, session and postproduction time, to create the best possible sound. The recording embodies a radical new approach to orchestral virtuosity, score fidelity, vocal style and performance practice. His approach to the Mozart score is to undo what he considers the effects of the 20th-century operatic tradition that is focused on simplification and vocal volume. Says Currentzis, "There are so many recordings which convey the general spirit of Mozart's music. The only point in making a new one is to give the audience a chance to hear and learn about all the magic which this score holds."
Cosí Fan Tutte is available as a standard 3-CD set featuring a 300-page bound book that includes tracklist, full libretto and liner notes in a multipack with a slipcase. A Deluxe Edition is also available which includes everything from the standard edition but housed in a deluxe CD-sized case-bound book with a dust jacket and features more extensive liner notes and an enlightening interview with Currentzis.Notes & Reviews:
