Notes and Editorial Reviews

One of the three giants of the Viennese Classical style, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart needs no introduction. He developed the pre-existing forms of the Classical idiom rather than inventing new ones, but with outstanding results. Yes, there was definitely a ‘before’ and ‘after’ Mozart, as illustrated here by his operatic masterpiece Cosi fan tutte in the award-winning interpretation of Rene Jacobs, alongside Philippe Herreweghe’s celebrated version of the Requiem, two of the most popular piano concertos, and other gems.
