Sir Charles Mackerras leads a fine performance of Mozart's last opera seria, a work that should be far better appreciated than it is. Full of dignity and poise, aria follows duet follows aria, fascinatingly scored, and exactly the correct length. The numbers are expressive and filled with the information we need to know these characters. Sesto, a travesty role, is taken by Magdalena Kozena, who follows in the footsteps of Teresa Berganza, Cecilia Bartoli, and Anne Sofie von Otter and proves their equal. Her gorgeous voice and technique shine through. Hillevi Martinpelto's Vitellia is handsomely sung; Christine Rice, sounding much like Kozena, is fine as his friend Annio; Lisa Milne's pretty, silvery tone is just right for Servilia. As Tito, Rainer Trost sings with dignity and accuracy in the character's noble and sometimes very florid music, and John Relyea lends his dark bass to the part of Publio. The Scottish Chamber Orchestra is augmented by some period players on brass, and the effect is exciting. This may not be your number-one choice--Hogwood and Bartoli and Gardiner and von Otter are better---but it's an excellent performance nonetheless. --Robert Levine

Yesterday, cap in hand, I did the rounds of the Australian Knappertsbusch Association in the hope that one of its members would survey the set in question. After all the current review is inadequate and this was a major release from DG. Abuse and rancour were forthcoming. It could be time for a Night of the Short Toothpicks.

Charles Mackerras has never struck me as being an inspired Mozart but he's highly competent for sure. Contrary to my expectations, he's the star of this venture. He wheedles what he can from a less-than-stellar cast. In terms of drama and vocal acting, supported by the gutsy playing of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, this is a signal triumph; one understands why Mozart hailed Mazzolà's libretto as "true opera." The ensembles are vividly characterised. For instance, the gravity of the situation in "Vengo ... aspettate ... Sesto!" is superbly conveyed. K 621 is graced with two magnificent finales - each of them is an event-horizon. The conclusion of Act I ("Deh, conservate, oh Dei,") is stirring stuff. Here is further refutation - not that it's needed - of the near-infallible Charles Rosen: "More puzzling still, in an entirely different way, is the case of La Clemenza di Tito, Mozart's last opera. Written (in haste, it is true) at a time when Mozart was composing some of his greatest music, it is a work of exquisite grace and rarely redeemed dullness . . . Tito has all the finish of Mozart's finest works - Mozart's music is never less than beautiful - but it is difficult to convey how unmemorable it is." Mind you, Rosen also claimed that "if (Idomeneo) could have been saved for the repertory, it would have happened by now . . . . ."

Sadly, for all the dramatic thrust of this performance, much of the singing is ordinary.
