Considered one of the finest living interpreters of the music of Mozart, Jérémie Rhorer has a memorable performance once again with Die Entführung aus dem Serail. This release was recorded at the Festival d'Aix-en-Provence, Paris in 2015. ""In Die Entführung, Mozart presents a completely unprecedented vision of the singspiel, with highly developed ensembles and musical continuity at a time when contemporary spectators were expecting the standard alternation between spoken adn sung sections"" - Jérémie Rhorer

some of the airiness/lightness of Eugen Jochum/DG in 1963 (seven years later). On the other hand Erika Koth is younger and is bit
stronger and more enchanting for Szell. She has received some criticism on Amazon with which I disagree, that of sounding shrill and tremulous.
I find her tonally sweet, technically secure and dramatically convincing. I do prefer Wunderlich's 1963 Belmonte to Schock's thicker, beefier effort.
The Osmins (Boehme for Szell , then Moll for Bohm/DG/Dresden ) are both good, as are Lisa Otto and Murray Dickie for Szell.. If asked
to choose, I would want to keep the Jochum for his conducting but also this Szell version primarily because of Koth who to
me is pantheonic.
For chance, both are old, the sound is so-so, but they are excellent, really mozartian and make feel you happy. The art of singing mozart, especially for 'things of no importance" like this Singspiel, is really better now, but you have, in both recordings, some singing moments of grace.
