Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
From the first note it's apparent that Solti isn't going to stomp the life out of this music--his overture is less frenetic than what we've grown used to in period performances. His relaxed, affectionate mood holds good throughout this 1973 account from Covent Garden, where Solti was music director. The singers are favorites at the Royal Opera, also, every part taken at least commendably and sometimes better. Tenor Ryland Davies' Ferrando sounds a bit thin-voiced and uneasy in Italian but is exuberant and musically adept. Tom Krause sounds great as a secure, dark-voiced Guglielmo. Pilar Lorengar and Teresa Berganza (both Spanish) are sympathetic as the two sisters, although neither is absolutely in command of the music. The best thing about them is how well their voices blend. Everyone acts well, with at least a stab at comedy.

I would rank the Colin Davis set on Philips a notch higher than this one, since it has Monserrat Caballe and Janet Baker, who outshine the women here, and more relaxed, expressive conducting. But at a bargain price this is certainly an enjoyable, well-presented Cosi in very good sound.

Of all the recordings of "Cosi Fan Tutte", this is by far the best. It has all the humor, the sex, the sensuality, the wit, the heartbreak, the beauty, the irony of this miraculous score. The recording just jumps out at you, bursting with life. The performance is electric, and the recording, done in early 1970s, is bright, spacious and expansive.

This cast simply could not be better. Pilar Lorengar sings Fiordiligi, and her bright, shimmering voice has an edge to it that makes her sound very hight-strung, as if she is always on the verge of a nervous breakdown. Thus, she is perfect as Fiordiligi,who takes herself very seriously;as a result, her ultimate seduction is that much more momentous. Teresa Berganza, with her burnished, clean mezzo and perfect diction is a clear contrast to Lorengar, resulting in glorious two-part singing for the sisters. Jane Berbie has a grand time as Despina, pulling out all the stops. Her fake voice as the lawyer in the Act Two finale is a real hoot, with the strings in the background tripping all over themselves, trying to untangle the legalese.

The guys are equally ideal. Tom Krause is a macho, sexy Guglielmo, full of bluster and swagger. Ryland Davies is a full-voiced, sensitive Ferrando, and Gabriel Bacquier is Berbie's match, and he relishes his role.

Solti and the London Phil do full justice to the score, as does Jeffrey Tate on harpsichord, who brings the continuo to the forefront, unafraid, joining in the fun and becoming in effect another cast member. Everybody involved trusts and loves Mozart, and they let him have his way. I could live inside this score. There are at least a dozen recordings of "Cosi Fan Tutte" in my collection,and this is my favorite by far; it has it all.

This deserves five stars. When it came out in about 1974 it was overshadowed by the Colin Davis recording on Philips. Davis is excellent, and his Fiordiligi, Montserrat Caballe, has never been bettered in the role, but Pilar Lorengar, for Solti, is superb, and Berganza is as good as the excellent Janet Baker (for Davis) and Anne Sofie von Otter (for Marriner, in 1989). Where Solti's version has the edge over Davis is in the male casting -- Ryland Davies, usually in a comprimario role in recordings, is in fresher voice than Nicolai Gedda was in 1974, and Tom Krause is both more elegant and sweeter of voice than Ganzarolli. I don't mean that Gedda and Ganzarolli are bad, however! The best male singing on a relatively recent recording is done by Araiza and Thomas Allen for Neville Marriner, who, with von Otter and the young Karita Mattila (not to mention Jose Van Dam as Alfonso) make a great all-round cast. That 1989 recording is, to my mind, as recommendable as the Davis and Solti. One to avoid? Gardiner's, with Roocroft and Mannion. The women aren't bad, but not in the same league as Caballe, Mattila, and Lorengar (not to mention Schwarzkopf, from an earlier era). I haven't heard Solti's later recording, so can't comment on that. BTW -- the three recordings I like all have excellent Despinas, with Berbie (for Solti) and Smytka (for Marriner) especially pleasant surprises, for I didn't know the work of either one.

One can't really compare these post-1970 recordings with earlier ones, for the cuts (in Karajan's 1955 version, or Jochum's in 1962) are really disfiguring. Especially cuts to the opening of Act 2 are damaging, for they mess up the build-up to the first emotional climax of the opera, "Per Pieta . . .

i own 5 different recordings of cosi fan tutte. i will give this one 3rd place after Price- Toyanos , Caballe- Baker & Schwarzkopf -Ludwig, i was curious about how Lorengar & Berganza will do, Lorengar must sound more like Mozart wanted, but the other 3 are superior to all the rest of them . Berbie is an unlikely despina. & Berganza is a perfect Dorabella, she is for the 70's what Baltsa was for the 80's & Bartoli for the 90's. but we can never forget for the 70's also Troyanos, Baker & Horne. this set is for a cosi fan tutte or Mozart collector like me, never a must or only version to have
