About

During the early nineteenth century the new 1804 Viennese version of La Clemenza di Tito, was Mozart’s most popular opera in Europe. However, in keeping with the practice during that period, it was performed in versions adapted to the times and the taste of the opera public – and this is precisely the starting point for our recording’s conductor – Alessandro De Marchi. He would like to present Tito in the form in which it was staged and acclaimed in great houses from the Vienna Court Opera to the Milan Scala and from Dresden and Hamburg to Paris during the early years of the nineteenth century. Our recording is based on the acclaimed production at the Innsbruck Festival Weeks 2013 with the Academia Montis Regalis performing on historical instruments.

Reviews

... the most striking aspects of the performance are the singing of Carlo Allemano as Tito and Kate Aldrich as Sesto, and the instrumental playing by the members of Academia Montis Regalis, particularly its clarinettist.  Andrew Clements
