It was a high-level cast; notable features were spontaneous, clear, fluent recitative, audible sotto-voce whisperings, and an electrifying unity in ensemble. --The Stage

' The conducting of Colin Davis ensures that this is not just a polished performance but a memorable musical and theatrical experience. --The Standard

This Production,which ruled at Convent Garden from 1968 to 1986,is represented by a performance from January 27,1981.Dame Kiri Te Kanawa is at her best in the difficult role of Fiordiligi,backed by tenor Stuart Burrows and baritone Sir Thomas Allen.Sir Colin Davis conducts with a sure hand;the chorus and orchestra are in excellent form.A lovely production. **** --Daily Mail, 08/10/10

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This being a live performance from almost thirty years ago, a few allowances have to be made for a bit of background rumble and some - but not much - audience intrusion in the form of laughter (not objectionable) and the occasional cough, as ever perfectly timed to coincide with tender moments. The sound is slightly tubby and the orchestra somewhat recessed but none of this is likely to trouble the seasoned listener who likes the atmosphere of live theatre and wants to hear a classic account of what is now probably Mozart's most popular opera.

Colin Davis had already recorded a much-admired studio version of "Così" in 1974; the interpretation here is similarly grand in parts but also more sprightly, especially in the recitative - and despite the august presence in 1974 of such celebrated singers as Montserrat Caballé and Janet Baker, there is no doubt that they sound rather stately and mature compared with the youthful and vivacious sisters of Kiri Te Kanawa and Agnes Baltsa. Stuart Burrows's Fernando represents a considerable advance over Nicolai Gedda, who was not in good voice for the recording, and I have no doubt at all that vocally "Britain's favourite baritone", Sir Thomas Allen, is infinitely more suave and alluring than the gruff and rather clumsy Ganzarolli. The bass is the same in both: a saturnine and knowing Richard Van Allen, rich of tone, idiomatic and fluent in his delivery of text, even if he is occasionally slightly clumsy in more delicate vocal manoeuvres.

Direct comparison might also be made with a neglected recording for which I have a great affection and which I reviewed here earlier this year: the 1977 studio set conducted by Alain Lombard, with features a youthful cast headed by Te Kanawa and Frederica Von Stade.

A great night at the opera 26 Oct. 2010
By Ralph Moore - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This being a live performance from almost thirty years ago, a few allowances have to be made for a bit of background rumble and some - but not much - audience intrusion in the form of laughter (not objectionable) and the occasional cough, as ever perfectly timed to coincide with tender moments. The sound is slightly tubby and the orchestra somewhat recessed but none of this is likely to trouble the seasoned listener who likes the atmosphere of live theatre and wants to hear a classic account of what is now probably Mozart's most popular opera.

The bass is the same in both: a saturnine and knowing Richard Van Allen, rich of tone, idiomatic and fluent in his delivery of text, even if he is occasionally slightly clumsy in more delicate vocal manoeuvres.

Direct comparison might also be made with a neglected recording for which I have a great affection and which I reviewed here earlier this year: the 1977 studio set conducted by Alain Lombard, with features a youthful cast headed by Te Kanawa and Frederica Von Stade. The men there are less conventionally starry but they make a fine team. Te Kanawa delivers a virtually identical and superlative performance in both, although she is more animated in this version, being, as you might expect, more attentive to word-painting when performing live. Her creamy, flawless voice - which blends beautifully with that of Baltsa - makes light of the parodic coloratura in "Come scoglio", nailing the runs and trills with consummate ease and sailing from note to note neatly on the vibrato. It is another glorious account to be savoured by her legion fans.

Baltsa is scarcely less accomplished: this is an impulsive, impassioned, spitfire of a Dorabella; her vibrancy of voice occasionally results in a little passing sharpness but it is a winning impersonation, as chuckles from the audience confirm.

Daniella Mazzucato is a tad shallow and over-bright of voice as Despina, but her background in operetta makes an accomplished comedienne, pert and characterful, if neither as funny as Stratas in the Lombard nor as vocally alluring as Hanny Steffek in the famous 1962 Böhm recording. Clearly the audience enjoys her mugging and stage-business.

Despite the slightly odd, occluded nature of his vocal production - a certain almost Russian, liquid plumminess which I nonetheless like - Stuart Burrows reminds us of what an elegant tenor he possessed; he gives us plangent, melting accounts of his arias to put most other interpreters in the shade.

Allen as Guglielmo is in fine, velvet voice, capable of oscillating between oleaginous charm when he is playing the seducer and gritted-teeth venom when betrayed.

Davis once more proves his Mozartian credentials: I love the way he injects pace into the "E voi ridete" exchange between the three plotters but can relax for the most famous number, "Soave sia il vento", which at a leisurely 4:14 is permitted to hover, suspended in the air, producing a timeless moment of beauty just as it should. The orchestra is very fine - especially the euphonious woodwind and horns.

The set is in an attractive clam-shell box, the 3 discs in cardboard sleeves. No libretto is provided except via a link on the Opus Arte website. This does not bother me but I can understand how it irritates others.

This is, in short, an attractive set, not in the very best sound but nonetheless a really satisfying souvenir of a great night at the opera and perhaps also a version to live with if you follow the artists in question.

This set is 6 Mar. 2015
By Kirk List - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
...definitely more admirable than not. Colin Davis and the Covent Garden Orchestra play very well. The pacing is mostly lively and one can relish the ceaseless beauty of the opera. The cast is quite strong with one demurral based primarily
on a subjective annoyance with the timbre (chacun of course) and occcasionally bothersome phrasing of Kiri te Kanawa. She sometimes rushes
quicker passages, causing less than exact phrasing. Doubtless some of this would have been corrected in a studio
performance. I prefer the singing and timbre of three Fiordiligis: Della Casa/Bohm/Decca, Caballe/Davis/Philips and
Janowitz/Bohm/DG live. Baltsa is a strong and attractive Dorabella. I had not heard Daniela Mazzucacato. She has a light
voice and sufficient vivacity without effacing such Despinas as Grist/Bohm/DG, Koth/Jochum DG and Loose/Bohm/Decca.
The men are quite solid. Richard Van Allan as again a wise and witty Alfonso (his Mikado with Mackerras is memorable).
Thomas Allen displays an attractive timbre and welcome energy as Guglielmo without displacing my favorite (again chacun-Hermann Prey/Jochum/DG). Stuart Burrows is a great Ferrando, rivaling his Tamino for Solti. I prefer his
voice per se to those of such Taminos as Dermota/Bohm, Schreier/Bohm and Nicolai Gedda. This performance remains quite
pleasurable.

Peers: Jochum/DG (excepting Seefried); Davis/Philips; Marriner/Decca; Bohm/Decca and DG live

Nothing I want to add from previous review but another 5 star 13 Dec. 2010
By Kyle E. Lockhart - Published on Amazon.com

Read the other review and you get all you could want to now about this delightful recording. I simply purchased it because it was prime Te Kanawa Mozart years. I would have been happy just hearing her in fine form. But, I found the whole recording a delight. Plus, Te Kanawa gave me more than I even expected!
Excellent! 13 Jan. 2013

Format: Audio CD
Considering that this is a rerelease of a 1981 recording, they could've done more to clean up the recording. It's a bit cloudy. I will say that the cast is very well chosen and Dame Kiri Te Kanawa shines in the coloratura role of Fiordiligi. I'm a little disappointed in the variance of tempi throughout. I guess since I sing this role a bit faster, I guess I just want Sir Colin Davis to get on with it. It's a really nice recording and one that I'm glad to own.
