By Ambrosian Opera Chorus, Erich Leinsdorf, Ezio Flagello, George Shirley, Judith Raskin, Leontyne Price, New Philharmonia Orchestra, Sherrill Milnes, and Tatiana Troyanos. By Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Classical. 3 listening CDs. Published by Naxos (NX.88875196382).


This 1967 RCA recording was praised by BBC Music Magazine for conductor Erich Leinsdorf's judicious pacing and the ensemble's panache. Cosi 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 write the libretto for Don Giovanni and Le nozze di Figaro, two more of Mozart's most famous operas. Erich Leinsdorf performed and recorded with leading opera companies across Europe and the United States during his long career. He is most remembered for his November 22, 1963 concert with the Boston Symphony, during which he had to announce the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. He followed the news with the Funeral March from Beethoven's third symphony. "The set boasts gorgeous, grand voices, headed by Leontyne Price, stately, imposing... [Tatiana]. 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).
