Great Mozart Opera Recordings

Mozart: The Marriage of Figaro
Mozart: The Marriage of Figaro
"Sung with great character, conducted with elan; the continuo playing is a particular delight. The recording also wears its age (1955, stereo) very well."
Idomeneo
Idomeneo
"Better sung, conducted, played and recorded than any other recording of this opera, in my opinion; and that includes Gardiner's"
Mozart, Vol.41 - Don Giovanni
Mozart, Vol.41 - Don Giovanni
"Neither old-fashioned on the one hand, nor played on period instruments on the other, this early 70s recording still makes powerful claims to be the best general recording of this work."
Mozart - Die Entführung aus dem Serail (The Abduction from the Seraglio) K. 384 / Les Arts Florissants . Christie
Mozart - Die Entführung aus dem Serail (The Abduction from the Seraglio) K. 384 / Les Arts Florissants . Christie
"A sparkling period-instrument performance; attractively sung and conducted."
Mozart: Cosi fan tutte
Mozart: Cosi fan tutte
"Bohm's first two recordings, and Karajan's 50s recording might feature more characterful singing, but this blows them away for orchestral sound and the dynamism of Mackerras's exciting interpretation"
Mozart - Die Zauberflöte (The Magic Flute) / Les Arts Florissants, Christie
Mozart - Die Zauberflöte (The Magic Flute) / Les Arts Florissants, Christie
"The best of the period instrument Magic Flutes, in my opinion"
Mozart: Don Giovanni
Mozart: Don Giovanni
"Recorded in 1936. Both in terms of style and sound quality this has aged very well, with the exception of the modern piano continuo. An enduring recording, all the same."
Mozart, Vol.44 - La Clemenza di Tito
Mozart, Vol.44 - La Clemenza di Tito
"I still think this is better than any of its more recently recorded rivals."
Mozart: Così Fan Tutte
Mozart: Così Fan Tutte
"1955 stereo, somewhat thin-sounding (possibly transferred from vinyl test pressings?), featuring a savagely cut score - and yet, and yet, I prefer it to Bohm's later, more celebrated EMI recording."
Mozart - Die Zauberflote (The Magic Flute)
Mozart - Die Zauberflote (The Magic Flute)
"The Beecham magic usually rubbed off on his Mozart recordings, and this is certainly no exception."
