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.

Classic FM Magazine

December 2010


“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”

Gramophone Magazine

January 2011

“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.”

International Record Review

December 2010

“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.”
