Notes & Reviews:

This is the fourth of DG's series of Mozart operas conducted by Yannick Nézet-Séguin and initiated by Rolando Villazón, & was recorded with a stellar cast, one of the brightest and most insightful conductors of our day, and a handpicked orchestra playing at their best in the stunning Festspielhaus Baden-Baden (July 2015). The cast includes Sonya Yoncheva, Thomas Hampson, Christiane Karg, Luca Pisaroni, Anne Sofie von Otter, Rolando Villazon and others.

Sunday Times, 1st July 2016
You are in his safe hands the moment Mozart's upstairs-downstairs comedy kicks off, the Chamber Orchestra of Europe buoyant, textures balanced, colours vibrant...Yoncheva's magnificently melancholic Countess is a peach of a performance, lusciously, dreamily sung...[Villaz=n] grabs hold of every bar with comic gusto.

Gramophone Magazine, September 2016
The COE play beautifully ; the secco recitatives are accompanied by cello and fortepiano, the latter also to be heard - never intrusively - in some of the arias and ensembles. As Susanna, Karg move effortlessly from the spirited girl... to a tender, womanly account of 'Deh vieni'.

BBC Music Magazine, November 2016
Hampson is a rock-steady Count... Yoncheva gives the Countess some real passion... Pisaroni's Figaro is confident and spirited... Karg as Susanna is agile... Villaz=n's Basilio is characteristically vivid.
