Notes and Editorial Reviews

Ferenc Fricsay's first complete recording of a Mozart opera was made in December 1949 for the RIAS Berlin. For Fricsay, Mozart was the barometer of musical interpretation. In his reading of Mozart, he differed noticeably from the performance practice of his time: he used smaller forces within the orchestra and choir, both almost in chamber formation, produced a transparent, carefully graded sound within which every detail remains audible. The differentiated sound, the fresh and contrasting tempo and the careful portrayal of details with the whole set lead to a coherent musical concept. In this recording, akin to a pilot scheme, Fricsay's Mozart ideals are clearly outlined. Ferenc Fricsay's first complete recording of a Mozart opera was made in December 1949 for the RIAS Berlin.
