The notable musicologist Alfred Einstein commented that Idomeneo is ‘one of those works that even a genius of highest rank, like Mozart, could write only once in his life’.

Every page of the score deserves appreciation. Of the many exceptional arias and ensembles, especially notable is the third act quartet ‘Andrò ramingo e solo’, one of the most moving concerted numbers in any Mozart opera.

This recording is based on the original 1781 Munich version, without the extended ballet but including some music cut by Mozart before the première.

Gramophone Magazine

January 2011

“Guidarini's conducting is usually neat, light and sensible...Streit is an elegant Mozartian tenor, albeit a little more effortful than usual on this occasion - he pulls out all the stops for "Fuor del mar", which is not far off the platinum standard of Gardiner's Anthony Rolfe Johnson”
