One of the greatest artists of her generation, Cecilia Bartoli is at the height of her powers. With thrilling performances of Mozart and Haydn arias, recorded live in concert, this double disc set also includes symphonic performances from Nikolaus Harnoncourt and his Concentus Musicus Wien.

‘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.’ Classic fM

‘A cracker of a concert, seductively low-lit, well shot and edited, well recorded. …Nicholaus Harnoncourt and his Vienna period band first treat Graz’s fine Stefaniensaal to a provocative Oxford Symphony, highly coloured and contrasted, the opening melting, the Adagio martial, the minuet a tease, the finale fierily fugal. Then, Cecilia Bartoli all but steals the show with two of Haydn’s most dramatic heroines …As usual, she gives her all – and more – and you can’t help but love her.’ BBC Music Magazine
