Editorial Reviews

Review

"An outstanding Mozart singer" -- Gramophone Magazine

"She has a splendid vocal instrument: a gorgeous, polished

timbre powerfully projected, with plenty of agility and flexibility." -- Los Angeles Times

Product Description

Magdalena Kozená's first all-Mozart album--and her first

album in collaboration with partner Sir Simon Rattle--stands

out as one of the highlights of 2006's Mozart Anniversary

celebrations.

Magdalena is a natural Mozart singer, garnering rave reviews

and enchanting audiences wherever she performs Mozart

on stage. Recent performances in Philadelphia, Los Angeles,

Berkeley and New York (Carnegie Hall) have brought her

glowing praise.

This album is a collection of some of Mozart's finest arias

for female voice, mostly for mezzo-soprano but Magdalena

also taps her soprano potential with arias including Vitellia's

"Non più di fiori" from La Clemenza di Tito.

Sir Simon Rattle is the ideal conductor for this project,

delicately wrapping Magdalena's voice in vivid and sensitive

orchestral sounds of the Orchestra of the Age of

Enlightenment, the period ensemble with which he has

been working for more than a decade.

This release features one of the world's most exciting voices

joined by a brilliant conductor and ensemble--a Mozart

recording poised to captivate music lovers and critics

worldwide.

Format: Audio CD
After flurries of gossip about their affair (both were married at the time) Simon Rattle took as his third wife the Czech mezzo Magdalena Kozena. For some reason their CD of Mozart arias hasn't created any waves here at Amazon. It should, becasue Kozena adds to three first-rate recitals on DG; the one in French is particularly fine. Her voice is warm and feminine, if a bit lacking in individuality. YOu can't pick it out instantly the way you could Janet Baker's or Christa Ludwig's. And she's a bit shy of personality compared to those two great predecessors. If she gains more confidence and drama, however, she could evolve into a great artist.

Her range here includes arias for both soprano and mezzo from all the great Mozart operas. It wasn't the best idea to start off with Susanna's 'Deh, vieni' from the Marriage of figaro; Kozena isns't light and witty. She immediately moves into Cherubino's 'Voi che sapete,' which suts her much better. She adds trills and decoration to the vocal line and handles them expertly. Adding to the period feeling, Rattle conducts the Orch. of the Age of Enlightenment, but he seems to have asked them to use vibrato in the modern style. In the concert aria with piano obbligato, 'Ch'io mi scordi di te,' Kozena is technically impeccable, but by now we are feeling a lack of temeprament. She is too wdded to correctness, which wasn't true of her swinging outside Mozart.

When the dozen arias are through, she has displayed enormous talent, and only her lack of drama causes me to hold back the fifth star. Schwarzkopf, von Otter, and other Mozart experts have nothing to fear quite yet, but Kozena should continue to rise--she certainly has all the voice and beauty she needs.

release and I am glad I did. It is a really nice Mozart collection. In fact, I purchased this disc along with Garanca's Mozart disc on Virgin the same week and I have to say that they are two of the best Mozart programs I have purchased. Kozena's voice sounds great (as always) and her ornaments are unexpected but nice. I can't remember the last time I enjoyed "Voi che sapete" so much. The orchestra led by Rattle is wonderful as well. However, the one who really shines through this disc is Mozart.

Format: Audio CD
Kozena owns a voice that every soprano or mezzo-soprano would but grow green with envy.
Yes - you need a 'beautiful voice' to sing Mozart, whose musical lines in the arias are so exposed that any minor timbre defect would become a glaring defect.
Listening to Kozena dispels this greatest 'scare' in any Mozart album.
AND as an added but vital bonus, this young lady KNOWS her stuff - she does not just belt out the music; she SINGS them, with the lyrics, with the right emotion, with full expression and nuances.
I fully agree that this may 'appear' to be small matters - but in terms of a Mozartian, these apparently small matters really matter. To make a character alive in Mozart's operas with simple musical lines require true artistry. Listen to other top singers today belting out Mozart arias with beautiful voices - how many of those beautiful voices are able to fully characterise? To sing them with real drama?
There is nothing 'icy' about Kozena's singing - never. But she is so perfectly luscious in terms of tone that her voice treats lsitners' ears with the best possible massage. And on top of that, the 'massage' is never boring.
Our generation is truly too fortunate to have such a wonderful singer with us.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
In this CD, the mezzo soprano, Magdalena Kozena, sings Mozart, with the able support of conductor Simon Rattle and the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment. Selections come from operas such as "Le Nozze di Figaro," "Cosi fan tutte," "Idomeneo," and "La Clemenza di Tito," and so on.

Her voice is rich indeed, and she displays great vocal agility, with fine coloratura technique. Let's sample a handful of cuts to get a sense of her singing and artistry.

"Giunse alfin il momento. . . Deh vieni, non tardar, o gioia bella," from "Le Nozze di Figaro." At the outset, she sings richly. Her mezzo voice is a wonderful instrument. She seems to capture Susanna's character nicely. This is a poignant aria, sung poignantly.

Then, the captivating "Voi che sapete." As the liner notes point out, this is not sung by Kozena as written by Mozart. The singing is florid. She demonstrates an extremely agile voice. Her trill technique sounds pretty good to me. This is a lot of fun to listen to, and made me think very highly of her skills. As has often been mentioned, coloratura does not refer to sopranos, it refers to a type of singing. And here we see wonderful coloratura mezzo soprano artistry.

Variation on a theme. . . . "Giunse alfin il momento. . .Al desio di chi t'adora," again from "Le Nozze di Figaro." Another example of her rich, smooth mezzo voice in action. The latter part shows off her vocal agility and a decent trill. The last portion is pretty rousing.

I'm a rank amateur when it comes to this style of music. But I am impressed with her technique and the richness of her voice. For those interested in this repertoire, I think that they would enjoy this CD.
