The electric Cecilia Bartoli joins Nikolaus Harnoncourt and the Concentus Musicus
Wien to perform arias and recitatives by Mozart at the Styriarte Festival in
Graz. This live recording is from the Stefaniensaal, Graz's concert hall famous
for its perfect acoustic.
Superb - a masterclass in the vocal arts, how to conduct Mozart and how
to direct a film of the occasion...director Brian Large captures a great singer
at the height of her powers guided by the inspirational Harnoncourt. Bartoli
sings five arias in her inimitable way followed by Harnoncourt's illuminating
performance of the 'Prague' Symphony. Add to this two neat features on how the
concert was recorded and prepared, plus a superb booklet by Misha Donat, and
you have a very classy package indeed. Malcolm Hayes

Symphony 38 "Prague"
Voi avete un cor fedele
Giunse alfin il momento - Al desio di chi t'adora
Vado, ma dove? Oh Dei!
Un moto di gioia mi sento
Bella mia fiamma, addio
