Yvonne Kenny · Rockwell Blake · Theodor Guschlbauer
Live from the Opéra National de Lyon
Available February 2005

  • This recording presents an outstanding interpretation of one of Mozart's most aristocratic compositions. Mitridate was composed in 1770 when Mozart was just fourteen-years-old and is an impressive evidence for the young composer's wunderkind qualities
  • Yvonne Kenny is the most popular soprano and the highest-selling classical artist in her Australian home country. She reached new heights of fame when she sang at the Closing Ceremony of the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games
  • Rockwell Blake in the title role has been hailed as a vocal phenomenon. His dramatic tenor encompasses a prodigious vocal range and is capable of the most fluid agility
  • A both poetic and dramatic production from the Lyon National Opera, along with the Paris
    Bastille the most distinguished opera house in France

"Rockwell Blake is simply a phenomenon. He is not the rule, he's the exception. His is simply a virtuoso instrument, unique by itself with no one else to compare with."

"The 14-year-old Amadeus's stroke of genius is of overwhelmingly high quality. There are so many beautiful surprises in this richly varied music and the flow of wonderful ideas is captivating and the instrumentation glittering."
