Classical Opera - Apollo et Hyacinthus - Pizzicato


01 September 2012
Pizzicato
Marcel Louis
4 Stars

‘Apollo et Hyacinthus', K. 38 est un opera composé par Mozart à l'âge de 11 ans sur cette curieuse histoire de Hyacinthe tué par un disque lance par Apollon.  Le fait divers a dû intéresser l'enfant plus que les intrigues mythologiques continues dans l'histoire.  Penser qu'un jeune de 11 ans a pu composer cetter musique est finalement plus émouvant que la composition elle-même qui, ici, jouit d'une interpretation de très bonne qualité.  Laurence Zazzo est excellent dans le role d'Apollon.
