About

Sony Classical announces a major new Mozart opera project with conductor Teodor Currentzis and his orchestra & choir MusicAeterna - a ‘no-compromise’ studio recording cycle of Mozart’s three Da Ponte operas.

Living in a unique artistic community established on the edge of Siberia, the musicians work and record under ideal conditions towards Currentzis’ stated goal, “to show what can be achieved if you avoid the factory approach of the classical music mainstream”.

The recordings represent an unprecedented commitment by the artists in terms of preparation, session and post-production. They embody a radical new approach to orchestral virtuosity as well as to score fidelity, vocal style and performance practice.

Sony Classical launch the series with ‘Le Nozze Di Figaro’ , followed by ‘Cosi Fan Tutte’ in Autumn 2014 and ‘Don Giovanni’ in Autumn 2015.

Currentzis’ approach to the Mozart scores is based on the conviction that it is virtually impossible today to hear them performed precisely and in full. His stated intention is to undo what he considers the effects of 20th century operatic tradition focused on simplification and vocal volume at all cost. For Currentzis, these recordings represent the culmination of a decade-long research project dedicated to the discrepancies between the composer’s will and what our ears have become used to.

The lead soloists appearing in ‘Le Nozze di Figaro’ are Andrei Bondarenko as Count Almaviva, Simone Kermes as Countess Almaviva, Christian Von Horn as Figaro and Fanie Antonelou as Susanna.
