Highlights from Cosi fan Tutte this Sunday Night March 11 on The Lyric Stage
Conductor Teodor Currentzis did not like what he felt was the focus on simplification and vocal volume in present day Mozart performance. So with a lot of research into the performance style of Mozart's time, he came up with ideas of how to re-interpret Mozart for today's audience. Sony records liked the idea, and the result was a project to record the three operas Mozart composed with librettist Lorenzo da Ponte with Currentzis conducting his chosen soloists and his own early music group, MusicAeterna. This week we feature selections from the Currentzis interpretation of Mozart's Cosi fan Tutte, which dates from 2014.
