Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Harnoncourt, with the exception of his Sarastro, goes for lighter voices, as is the custom increasingly today with this composer. That, allied to crisp, rhythmically vital conducting sets Harnoncourt's version apart from all its rivals at present. His young lovers couldn't be more appealing. Hans Peter Blochwitz sings Tamino with youthful ardour in a fresh, reedy tenor. Barbara Bonney, adding to her growing reputation on disc, is a disarmingly ingenuous Pamina, deeply affecting in her G minor aria...Anton Scharinger's eager, boyish Papageno is one of the delights of the Harnoncourt performance. He is at once endearing and eager without being in the least self-conscious. In general, the Harnoncourt offers a different approach from its Read more modern rivals. I enjoyed it especially for the way it judiciously balances the jolly and serious elements in the piece."
