The newest release in Opera d’Oro’s Grand Tier series is of a live performance at the Salzburg Festival in 1972, with an all-star cast in one of Mozart’s greatest operas. Although everyone agrees today that Così fan tutte is one of the best in the “second tier” of Mozart’s operas, it was so unpopular for over a century that it was not only ignored, but occasionally banned. Beethoven reportedly complained that the subject was not serious enough, and subsequent critics felt the story to be too immoral to produce on a public stage. Certainly Così exhibits a prevailing amorality, even by today’s permissive standards, although modern exception to the tale is more likely to be based on its portrayal of women, not men, as the usual deceivers in love.

“Böhm’s conducting is first rate…in the arias, he is a master of working with the cast. The cast is excellent. Janowitz sings with authority and her voice is beautiful, contrasting nicely with Fassbaender’s fine mezzo. Schreier is a notable Mozart tenor, and scores well in ‘Un aura amorosa.’ Prey is an ideal Guglielmo, Grist a delectable Despina, and Fischer-Dieskau a suave, commanding Alfonso.” — FANFARE

"At the time, the singers were just about the best available… they all sing the text pointedly and give each note-value its due. Throughout it is clear that this show has been wonderfully rehearsed and it keeps its great rhythmic verve.” — ROBERT LEVINE, CLASSICSTODAY
