Album Summary

>Mozart, Wolfgang Amadeus : Die Zauberflöte (The Magic Flute), K. 620
Performer Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Its style falls a good distance from the historical niceties of our modern era's historically informed performance standards, but yet it still lands squarely in the most enjoyable listen category. Sir Colin Davis is near the beginning of his brilliant career to come when this Glyndebourne Festival live 1960 production of Mozart's Die Zauberflöte was staged. He leads a cast including Richard Lewis, Pilar Lorengar, Heather Harper, Geraint Evans and Hungarian bass Mihaly Szekely as Sarastro, whose formidable presence on opera house stages had been overwhelming audiences since the 1920s.
