Allan Altman
American Record Guide, March 2019

MOZART, W.A.: Nozze di Figaro (Le) [Opera] (Staatsoper unter den Linden, 2015) (NTSC) ACC-20366 
MOZART, W.A.: Nozze di Figaro (Le) [Opera] (Staatsoper unter den Linden, 2015) (Blu-ray, Full-HD) ACC-10366

The real star of the show is conductor Gustavo Dudamel. Under his baton, Mozart’s orchestral commentary on the action bursts forth with such clarity as to presage Wagner’s use of the orchestra to represent subconscious thoughts and feelings. Tempos and rubato feel natural and inevitable, sforzandos bubble like champagne, and complex orchestral figures are executed with exceptional clarity by the Staatskapelle Berlin. © 2019 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide

MOZART, W.A.: Nozze di Figaro (Le) [Opera] (Staatsoper unter den Linden, 2015) (Blu-ray, Full-HD) ACC-10366

This is all well and good, and the brouhaha is entertaining in its way…

There are no weak links in the cast, and Gustavo Dudamel keeps things moving along nicely… © 2019 Gramophone Read complete review on Gramophone




Remy Franck
Pizzicato, November 2018

With Jürgen Flimm’s inventive and lively staging, an excellent cast and a rather traditional conducting by Dudamel, this is an excellent performance of Mozart’s Le Nozze di Figaro. © 2018 Pizzicato
