This 1967 RCA recording was praised by BBC Music Magazine for conductor Erich Leinsdorf’s judicious pacing and the ensemble’s panache. Così Fan Tutte, which premiered on January 26, 1790 in Vienna, is an opera buffa by the master composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The libretto was written by Lorenzo Da Ponte, who also wrote the libretto for Don Giovanni and Le Nozze di Figaro, two more of Mozart’s most famous operas.

“The set boasts gorgeous, grand voices, headed by Leontyne Price’s, stately, imposing Fiordiligi…. Troyanos is a lively, palpitating Dorabella with a good sense of style. Her voice matches Price’s nicely…. The orchestral playing is beguiling, especially in the wind department.” (Gramophone)

History

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.
