Mozart: Idomeneo, K366

Danish National Choir & The Danish Radio Sinfonietta, Adam Fischer

Following the success of the now acclaimed “Mitridate” (6220580-82) and “Lucio Silla” (8226069-71), DRS (Danish Radio Sinfonietta’s own label) now release their third Mozart opera; Idomeneo.

Written when the composer was 24, Idomeneo was Mozart’s first mature opera seria. The libretto was adapted by Giambattista Varesco from a French text by Antoine Danchet.

“Fischer's vision of the opera is lean and muscular, with fleet-footed orchestral playing and strong, characterful soloists...Elsner captures the conflict raging within the Lear-like Idomeneo and demonstrates some fiendish coloratura...Fischer understands this opera deeply and presents it as a convincing drama” Classic FM Magazine, December 2010 *****

“the Danish Radio Sinfonietta's modern instruments play with impeccable sense and style, and Fischer quietly gets on with delivering outstanding results that bespeak natural judgement of Mozartian music drama: his pacing, shaping of phrases and balancing of strings with woodwind textures are magnificent, and the theatrical effects in the orchestration emerge lucidly.” Gramophone Magazine, January 2011

“Each of [Bonde-Hansen's] three arias is sculpted with immaculate taste and style...[Milanesi's] Elettra is delivered with native textual vitality and verve...However, it is Fischer's evident enthusiasm and the thrilling response he gets from chorus and orchestra...that makes this set so enjoyable.” International Record Review, December 2010

Libretto: Giovanni di Gamerra & Reductions in recitatives made by Richard Lewis


Henriette Bonde-Hansen (soprano), Susanne Elmark (soprano), Kristina Hammarström (mezzo soprano), Jakob Næslund Madsen (tenor), Simone Nold (soprano), Lothar Odinius (tenor) & Richard Lewis (harpsichord)

Danish Radio Sinfonietta & Ars Nova Copenhagen, Adam Fischer

3 CD's for price of 2

“With a fresh-voiced young cast and orchestral playing of crackling energy, this Danish Radio recording eclipses its closest CD rival, from Leopold Hager (Philips)...As the Emperor's sympathetic sister, Susanne Elmark despatches her many high staccato passages with effortless grace. Mezzo Kristina Hammarström makes a fiery Cecilio, while Simone Nold, as the suffering heroine, invests her pure, gentle soprano with a touching intensity of feeling.” The Telegraph, 5th July 2008

“Adám Fischer encourages playing of quivering energy from the trim, lean-toned Danish orchestra. While there are no big names among the soloists, they have fresh, youthful-sounding voices, and cope elegantly with Mozart's coloratura demands. …this is now the version to have of an ambitious, over-long but often richly expressive opera that has still not had a fully professional production in Britain.” Gramophone Magazine, Awards Issue 2008

“The Milan premiere of Lucio Silla, on Boxing Day 1772, was a near-fiasco: ham acting from the last-minute tenor and the prima donna in a sulk. But from the second performance Mozart's second opera seria was an unalloyed triumph.
The libretto is lumbering, sententious and dubiously motivated, culminating in an astonishing volte-face in which the sadistically ruthless Emperor suddenly morphs into a paragon of Enlightenment clemency. Not that this would have bothered 16-year-old Mozart's audiences one iota. What they came for – and got in spades – were varied and inventive arias that showcased the star singers.
The central roles of Giunia and her betrothed, the banished senator Cecilio (written for the castrato Rauzzini), inspired Mozart to his most powerful operatic music to date: darkly coloured accompanied recitatives that look forward to Idomeneo, Cecilio's anguished aria of parting, 'Ah, se a morir', a Gluckian ombra aria for Giunia as she prepares for death, and a dramatic trio that pits the two lovers against the raging Emperor.
This 2001-02 recording from Danish Radio archives is well sung and excitingly conducted.
Adám Fischer encourages playing of quivering energy from the trim, lean-toned Danish orchestra. In the accompanied recitatives the players grieve and rage as vividly as the singers.
Only Fischer's jerky tempo fluctuations, à la Harnoncourt, in the trio fail to convince.
While there are no big names among the soloists, they have fresh, youthful-sounding voices, and cope elegantly with Mozart's coloratura demands. As the put-upon heroine Giunia, Simone Nold sings with grace and agility, and fiery intensity, too – try the agitated Act 2 aria 'Parto, m'affretto'. Kristina Hammarström impresses especially in Cecilio's sombre memento mori scene in Act 1 and the spectacular vengeance aria 'Quest' improvviso tremito'. The secondary pair of lovers, Cecilio's friend Cinna and the Emperor's blithely innocent sister Celia, are equally well cast, Susanne Elmark dispatching high staccato passages with delightful insouciance.
The recording gives the orchestra plenty of presence without short-changing the singers.
This is now the version to have of an ambitious, over-long but often richly expressive opera.”

Mozart: Mitridate, rè di Ponto, K87

Mozart: Mitridate, rè di Ponto, K87


Mathias Zachariassen (Mitridate), Henriette Bonde-Hansen (Aspasia), Maria Fontosh (Sifare), Kristina Hammarström (Farnace), Lisa Larsson (Ismene), Anders J. Dahlin (Marzio) & Richard Lewis (harpsichord)

Vocal Group Ars Nova & Danish Radio Sinfonietta, Adam Fischer

Mitridate, re di Ponto (Mithridates, King of Pontus), K. 87 (74a), is an early opera seria in three acts by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The libretto is by Vittorio Amadeo Cigna-Santi after Giuseppe Parini's Italian translation of Jean Racine.

Mozart wrote Mitridate while touring Italy in 1770. It was first performed at the Regio Ducal Teatro, Milan, on the 26th of December 1770 (at the Milan Carnival). The opera was a success, having been performed twenty-one times despite doubts because of Mozart’s extreme youth - he was 14 at the time.

No revival took place until the 20th century. This opera features splendid virtuoso arias for the principal roles.

Mozart’s Mitridate is what literary scholars call a heroic historical drama, and the genre was considered the most prestigious theatrical form in the second half of the eighteenth century.

“The new set possesses notable features...excellent modern-instrument orchestra, the graceful, versatile and touching Henrietta Bonde-Hansen as prima donna, and - greatest strength of all - the conductor Adam Fischer...here a Mozartian of rhythmic incisiveness, lyrical warmth and a powerful sense of formal shape and balance.” BBC Music Magazine, May 2010 ***

“Fischer conducts with a sure sense of pacing; dramatic details in the orchestral ritornellos of each aria are astutely brought out... Most impressively, this performance captures the full theatrical potency of the unfurling plot...I shall be surprised to hear a more satisfying Mozart opera recording any time soon.” Gramophone Magazine, June 2010

“This Danish recording is crisply conducted by Adam Fischer and has outstanding singing from soprano Henriette Bonde-Hansen (Aspasia) and mezzo-soprano Kristina Hammarström (Farnace).” The Telegraph, 24th March 2010 ***

“Fischer appreciates the importance of a secure bass-line...[he] and his enthusiastic Danish players imbue this youthful music with spirit and energy; they make the most of what's in front of them and I have certainly never heard performances of early Mozart symphonies that I prefer.” Gramophone Magazine, November 2013

Mozart:

Symphony No. 35 in D major, K385 'Haffner'

Danish National Chamber Orchestra, Adam Fischer

This is the tenth volume in the Dacapo's acclaimed series of the complete symphonies by W.A. Mozart, recorded by the Danish National Chamber Orchestra and their renowned Austro-Hungarian chief conductor Adam Fischer.

It features two of Mozart's mature and most treasured symphonies nicknamed Haffner and Prague, composed in the composer's last decade, the 1780s.

“Fischer takes on a wealth of memorable competition...Just try the [Haffner] finale's limpid opening and the 'shock-tactic' timpani-dominated onslaught that follows. Exciting isn't the word...There's some very sensitive phrasing in the first and second movements [of the Prague]” Gramophone Magazine, November 2013

“Adam Fischer gives as fine a chamber orchestra performance of the Haffner symphony as you’ll hear anywhere...what impresses me about Fischer is that he uses his chamber forces to bring a fresh perspective on these Mozart symphonies. In this he demonstrates a gain in clarity of texture and argument without any loss of impact.” MusicWeb International, 7th November 2013

But if you want these symphonies on modern instruments, played with elan, sensitivity (not least in the exquisitely realised Andante of K43) and palpable sense of enjoyment, Fischer is your man.” Gramophone Magazine, September 2013
