Product description

2 CDs

Dorothea Röschmann, Ericka Miklósa, Christoph Strehl, René Pape, Hanno Müller-Brachmann.

This 2006 recording of the famous opera in two acts 'Die Zauberflöte (The Magic Flute)' by Austrian composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791) with libretto by German Emanuel Schikaneder (1751-1812) features the flamboyant Claudio Abbado conducting the Arnold Schonenberg Choir (Chorus Master: Erwin Ortner), Mahler Chamber Orchestra and soloists. Musical assistance is provided by Fausto Nardi.

For the "Mozart Forever 2006" celebration, here is Claudio Abbados's first-ever Die Zauberflöte (The Magic Flute), featuring an extraordinary young cast and the Mahler Chamber Orchestra. Recorded on Modena in conjunction with a series of performances in Italy and Germany, it was acclaimed by the press: "Abbado's performance is, quite simply, mesmerising. It is so full of musical insight and operatic experience that every bar seems perfectly placed, every detail...perfectly illuminated" (The Guardian).

This CD of Abbado's first-ever 'Magic Flute' received international acclaim, with Opera saying, "..a triumphant success", Die Zeit saying, "The inspiration of this evening with Abbado will live on long after the Mozart Year has passed" and Die Welt saying, "How Claudio Abbado does it is his magic - and his secret."
