Manufacturer Description


Mozart wrote this opera aged only 14, and his inexperience translates into a somewhat blunt approach to the form of opera seria. There are a few too many breathtaking coloratura showpieces one after the other near the beginning, for example, and the effect in dramatic terms is as infuriating as seeing three buses arrive at once. But if you set aside the need for dramatic development, and think of this work more as an operatic recital, then it really delivers the goods. Cecilia Bartoli is as astonishing as ever in the trouser role of Sifare, and manages to invest the youthful composer's vocal fireworks with real emotion. She is matched in terms of technical display by the high coloratura soprano Natalie Dessay, whose first, jaw-dropping aria "Al destin" is performed with effortless ease. And Sabbatini's bright, heroic tenor voice almost compensates single-handedly for the undue weighting of high voices. Rousset pushes the piece along at cracking pace, and draws perfectly phrased playing from Les Talens Lyrique. Overall it feels like a romp- -but a romp performed by world-class singers on top form. --Warwick Thompson
