Notes and Editorial Reviews

This selection contains both DDD and ADD recordings.
The body of work produced by Mozart is far too rich to be condensed to one CD. THE ULTIMATE MOZART ALBUM, part of Decca's "Ultimate" series, focuses on love songs from 'The Marriage of Figaro,' 'Don Giovanni,' 'The Magic Flute' and more.
Sung by some of the world's top vocalists, these performances have been culled from Decca's extensive music catalog. Leading off the album with a selection from 'Così fan Tutte,' the trio of voices sets the tone for the album: masterful performances of deliciously romantic music. The rich characters from Mozart's love stories come to life and fulfill the promise of the composer's masterful works. Whether or not this is the ultimate Mozart collection
Read more is open for debate, however, the collected works found on this album are certainly a joy to behold. Read less
