(US) Opera Today: "GOEHRING: Three modes of perception in Mozart — the philosophical, pastoral, and comic in Così fan tutte" (Book review by Dr. Brad Eden, University of Nevada, Las Vegas)

Contributed by Admin on Oct 03, 2011
“According to the book jacket, this is the first major scholarly study of Così fan tutte, considered to be one of Mozart's least-understood operas and librettist Lorenzo Da Ponte's most interesting text. Così fan tutte has been studied extensively, despite the broad assertion stated in the book. What the author of this study brings to the reader, which others have not, is a detailed examination of the philosophical, pastoral, and comic background of the libretto, characters, and music of the opera.

(UK) The English Concert: "Critical acclaim at the Wigmore"

Contributed by Admin on Oct 02, 2011

We opened our 2011-12 season this week with Artistic Director Harry Bicket at Wigmore Hall with two performances of a programme featuring music by Alessandro Scarlatti, Handel, Vivaldi and Venturini. Scarlatti and Handel were sung by renowned tenor Ian Bostridge, while Mr Venturini, despite his name, turned out to have come from the Low Countries, only adding to the interest surrounding his unfamiliar Sonata in G minor, a piece that particularly attracted the attention of Geoff Brown in The Times
