Acclaimed across the globe for the beauty of his voice, the emotional power of his performances, and his extraordinarily dazzling high notes, Peruvian superstar
tenor Juan Diego Flórez has in his career so far focused almost exclusively on the masterpieces of the bel canto repertoire by Rossini, Donizetti and Bellini, and
others. Now, in his eagerly awaited debut recording for Sony Classical, he turns his attention to the magic of Mozart.

From his earliest studies at the conservatoire in Lima to the present day, Flórez has sung and performed Mozart’s opera arias and concert works in his recitals.

But this is the first time he has chosen to record them. The album includes many of the best-loved arias from those operas. From Die Zauberflöte comes ‘Dies Bildnis
ist bezaubernd schön’. There are two arias from the late masterpiece La clemenza di Tito: ‘Del più sublime soglio’ and the anguished ‘Se all’impero’.

Both tenorarias - ‘Dalla sua pace’ and ‘Il mio tesoro’ – from Don Giovanni are present too, as is the hauntingly beautiful ‘Un’aura amorosa’ from Così fan tutte. Mozart also
features arias from earlier operas, including the dazzlingly virtuosic ‘Si spande al sole in faccia’ from Il re pastore, and the infectious ‘Fuor del mar’ from Idomeneo.

From Die Entführung aus dem Serail is the lovely ‘Ich baue ganz auf deine Stärke’, full of amorous hopefulness, and from Mitridate, re di Ponto, composed when Mozart was just fourteen, is the fast and furious ‘Vado incontro’. The album also includes the substantial concert aria ‘Misero! O sogno’.
