Notes & Reviews:

Arthaus presents a new way of perceiving La clemenza di Tito with this star-studded production from the 2003 Salzburg Festival. Here conductor Nikolaus Harnoncourt, renowned for his analytical approach, interprets Mozart's last opera. Together with the Vienna Philharmonic, he savors the miracles of Mozart's late work, bringing out its instrumental colors and effects while simultaneously providing the singers with a stimulating and attentive accompaniment. Martin Kusej's production emphasizes the darker sides of the piece, exploring the opera's archetypal patterns while also interpreting it as a highly topical and timeless political power game. His painstaking attention to detail reflects the demand to provide new insight into Mozart's works.

"The strongest point in its favour is its communication of the work's austere power: a music-drama that both sums up the past and looks far into the future...The characters, whether or not one accepts Kusej's view of them, are all delineated with extraordinary vividness; in purely vocal terms likewise this is a Tito cast of considerable all-round distinction."
