New recording cycle of Mozart’s opera
In 2012 Classical Opera launched a major new recording cycle of Mozart’s complete operas.
Following Apollo et Hyacinthus (Linn Records, May 2012), the second work in this complete cycle is the sacred singspiel Die Schuldigkeit des ersten Gebots (Signum Classics, September 2013). The illustrious cast includes Allan Clayton, Andrew Kennedy, Sarah Fox, Sophie Bevan and Cora Burggraaf.
In summer 2013 we recorded Mitridate, re di Ponto with a cast including the renowned Swedish soprano Miah Persson as Aspasia, Barry Banks (Mitridate), Sophie Bevan (Sifare) and Lawrence Zazzo (Farnace). This will be released later in in 2014 and will be the first complete recording of the opera, to incorporate the original settings which the young Mozart was forced to abandon by his demanding original cast.
