An enthusiastic advocate of Mozart's music, Rolando Villazon takes on the lead tenor role. Das Opernglas hailed his debut as Ferrando, calling him 'ideal for the role - we have not heard a more beautiful, better sung and deeper felt ‘Un aura amorosa' in a long time'.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Mozart is one of the most enduringly popular classical composers. He is responsible for over 600 works, many acknowledged as pinnacles of symphonic, concertante, chamber, piano, operatic, and choral music.
profile & recordings >>

In Così fan tutte, ossia La scuola degli amanti, the final collaboration between Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and his Italian librettist Lorenzo Da Ponte, the pair produced a work that still - almost 225 years after its premiere at the Burgtheater in Vienna on 26 January 1790 - fascinates audiences and commentators alike with its subtleties and ambiguities. All three of the Mozart / Da Ponte works - inadeed all of Mozart's mature operas - exhibit depth and complexity, but there is something special about the questioning and, in some senses, disturbing nature of this superficially light-hearted comedy. Its view of human nature has variously been described as frivolous, cynical, even misogynistic. Yet its own internal system of checks and balances surely offers a realistic (if paradoxically highly artificial) platform for widely varying observations on human nature as well as the experience and understanding of love and emotional fidelity. As such, and as it is constantly reinterpreted, Così will continue to puzzle, surprise, amaze and even shock.

Over recent decades, productions of all types have explored Così from innumerable angles, frequently revealing new insights along the way. But there is a lot to be said, too, for presenting the work in concert, as at the Baden-Baden Festival in July 2012 - the source of this recording - a mode of performance which offers the possibility of concentrating purely on the text and the music, thus allowing each listener to interpret what is happening at any moment on his or her own individually imagined stage. In particular, the vexing question of who pairs off with whom at the close of the opera - or whether any neat resolution is even possible by this stage - is left open for the listener to decide.

A second characteristic of Così fan tutte is its essential nature as an ensemble piece, even more than Figaro and Don Giovanni. All six of the opera's characters play leading roles, but they do so equally, with no one overshadowing the others. They also pair up to form three couples - the two sisters, their two lovers, and the two intriguers - as well as dividing into two symmetrical groups of three men and three women. Though the opera contains challenging arias for all the principals (except Don Alfonso, who stands slightly outside the action he has instigated), the preponderance of duets, trios, quartets, quintets and sextets makes Così the ensemble opera par excellence.

This recording represents the second in the series of Mozart operas being performed at the Baden-Baden Festival under the baton of the Canadian conductor Yannick Né zet-Sé guin, following up the previous year's highly successful Don Giovanni (available on Deutsche Grammophon CD 477 9878). One of the most acclaimed maestros of his generation, Né zet-Sé guin has rapidly risen to a position of international eminence as an interpreter of both symphonic repertoire and opera. Here he draws playing of enormous spirit and vitality from the illustrious Chamber Orchestra of Europe, and their historically informed approach is reflected amongst the cast in an occasional use of entirely appropriate vocal decoration. Recitatives are accompanied, in true period fashion, by Benjamin Bayl on fortepiano and Richard Lester on cello.

The cast is comprised of many notable Mozartians. The Swedish soprano Miah Persson is something of a specialist, recently acclaimed as Fiordiligi in Salzburg, Munich, Vienna, Tokyo and the New York Met, as well for her Elvira, Zerlina, Pamina and Susanna. Persson's luminous tone and facility over a wide range chart Fiordiligi's lines with clarity and grace. Blending perfectly with her stage sister in every way, while using her fluent vocalism to explore Dorabella's warmth and volatility, is the American mezzo Angela Brower, who has for some time now been carving out for herself a career with a strong Mozartian bias. The last few years have seen her enjoy conspicuous successes as Dorabella and Cherubino in Munich.

The young German soprano Mojca Erdmann, too, has been excelling in major Mozart roles, among them Pamina, Despina, Susanna and Zerlina - which she sang in Baden-Baden's 2011 Don Giovanni. As the wily ladiy's maid to Fiordiligi and Dorabella, Erdmann gets to display her expert handling of text, and the part benefits significantly from the distinctive colour and character of her soprano. She also proves particularly adept (and high-flying!) in her two vocal disguises. Like Erdmann, a returnee from the first release in this ongoing series - he sang Don Ottavio in Baden-Baden in 2011 - Mexican tenor Rolando Villazó n also has some comparative rarities in his Mozart repertoire, including Alessandro in Il re pastore in Zurich and Salzburg, as well as the title role in Lucio Silla in Salzburg. His sentient reading of Ferrando is both lithe and characteristically vital. As well as proving an ebullient, extravert Guglielmo in Baden-Baden, the Czech bass-baritone Adam Plachetka includes in his schedule Papageno, both the Count and the title role in Figaro, both Masetto and the title role in Don Giovanni, Publio in La clemenza di Tito and Roberto in La finta giardiniera.

Alessandro Corbelli is widely regarded as the leading Italian buffo baritone of our time, but in a career already spanning four decades, his large repertoire has covered much more besides, including such Mozart roles as Papageno, Guglielmo, both Leporello and Don Giovanni, and both Figaro and the Count. As Mozart and Da Ponte's worldly-wise puppet-master Don Alfonso, he combines an extraordinarily idiomatic and perceptive approach to the text with a wry - and at times dark - sense of humour.
