Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
The conductor Jérémie Rhorer is now considered one of the best interpreters of Mozart's music in general and his operas in particular. After conducting L'Enlèvement au Sérail at the 2015 Aix en Provence Festival, he gave the work again in a memorable concert at the Théâtre des Champs Elysées in Paris last September with his orchestra, the Cercle de l'Harmonie. It is this exceptional recording, a "live" recording that restores all the dramatic intensity of the opera, that we are offering you today.
"In The Abduction, Mozart offers a completely new vision of the Singspiel with the development of the ensembles and this musical continuity, whereas the spectator of the time could expect a classical alternation between spoken and sung. ", says Jérémie Rhorer in the interview that accompanies the disc. This musical dramaturgy is at the centre of this performance, which is served by a very homogeneous vocal set.
