'Bartoli in fine form - one of the best recorded concerts on DVD.' Gramophone
The electric Cecilia Bartoli joins Nikolaus Harnoncourt and the Concentus Musicus Wien to perform arias and recitatives by Mozart at the Styriarte Festival in Graz. This live recording is from the Stefaniensaal, Graz's concert hall famous for its perfect acoustic.
Superb - a masterclass in the vocal arts, how to conduct Mozart and how to direct a film of the occasion...director Brian Large captures a great singer at the height of her powers guided by the inspirational Harnoncourt. Bartoli sings five arias in her inimitable way followed by Harnoncourt's illuminating performance of the 'Prague' Symphony. Add to this two neat features on how the concert was recorded and prepared, plus a superb booklet by Misha Donat, and you have a very classy package indeed. Malcolm Hayes - Classic fM
