Prague was a “happy” city for Mozart; there his gifts were appreciated to the fullest when his opera, “Le nozze di Figaro” was first performed on January 17, 1787 in the composer’s presence. Sir Charles Mackerras delivers an authoritative interpretation of these masterpieces.

What separates Telarc’s superb recreation of Mozart’s finest inspirations from the half dozen competing editions? First, Telarc’s customary lucid, transparent, utterly natural sound. Most importantly the research published by William Malloch in recent years convinced Sir Charles of the necessity to recreate performance practices of Mozart’s time but without resorting to authentic instruments. These are spirited and uplifting performances.
