“Solti takes a fast and light approach which yet has none of his old fierceness. Much is owed to the superb playing of the Chamber Orchestra of Europe. [Fleming] sings with a firm, full voice that is yet brilliant and flexible... Altogether Solti's finest Mozart recording, outshining even his Figaro.” – Penguin Guide

“Von Otter knows how to extract the most in vivid characterization from her arias and capitulates to Guglielmo's advances with real feeling... Frank Lopardo is a paragon of a Ferrando, possibly the finest of all on disc, partly because his supple tenor encompasses both the lyrical and heroic.” – Gramophone Magazine
 

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Così fan tutte

Mozart’s third and final collaboration with librettist Lorenzo Da Ponte premiered in 1790. For much of the 19th and early 20th centuries, this comedy about testing the ties of young love was rarely seen on stage, its plot being considered “immoral.” Today it is among the most beloved operas in the repertoire.
