Boxed Set

This recording represents in a sense the accomplishment of René Jacobs’s Mozartian enterprise: after showing us another way of looking at the Da Ponte trilogy and taking a profoundly innovative approach to the two great opere serie (Idomeneo and La clemenza di Tito), he has now set out to harmonise the multitude of viewpoints exposed more or clearly in Die Zauberflöte, ranging far beyond its Masonic rituals and mixture of dramatic genres. As a result, Mozart’s most ‘nocturnal’ work is illuminated as if by . . . magic.
