Description

At the beginning of 1781, Mozart completed the composition of Idomeneo, re di Creta. After having been postponed several times, the opera was staged in Munich on 29th January of the same year, and was highly successful. With Idomeneo Mozart had finally reached full maturity as a composer of opera.

Die Entführung aus dem Serailis based on a rather banal libretto by Christoph Friedrich Bretzner. In formal terms it is a typical Singspiel of comic nature; an opera, that is, in which musical pieces alternate with recited passages, unlike the ‘dry recitative’ of Italian opera which is sung to the accompaniment of a basso continuo. The Singspiel was originally an eminently popular genre; the sung part was often entrusted to actors, who as singers were little better than honest amateurs, and made up of easily-memorised ariettas of modest length. Die Entführung aus dem Serail, in contrast, is musically very varied, with quite elaborate arias and duets of remarkable length, and the opera requires singers with great vocal range and first-class virtuoso technique.

 

This radio recording of Die Entführung aus dem Serail, made in Bolzano in 1958 with the orchestra and chorus of the Milan RAI under the artistic direction of Peter Maag.

 

Enjoy this opera, which has been carefully remastered with 24 bit / 96 kHz. – A must for all Peter Maag fans.

Reviews:

Audiophile Audition (20.01.2014)


There are of course many competitors in Ravel’s piano music to his new release, but few could offer the superb hi-res multichannel sonics of this one, as well as the excellent performances. The 96K/24-bit recording used a set of Shoeps Ambisonic mics as well as a B & K mic. The original recording was made in Italy in November of 2012. (John Sunier)

The sheer beauty of a work without time

(…) Among these Pillars of Hercules passes Alessandra Ammara, whose Gaspard is inside a brand new album dedicated to the masterpieces of Ravel. I know her from the Conservatory of Florence, mid-80s. A phenomenon, and it has remained. Great, great Alessandra. (Nazzareno Carusi)

Seen and Heard International (13.05.2013)


The Noble Return of Alessandra Ammara

When seamless pianistic facility is combined with profound musical insight it is called Alessandra Ammara. This present occasion is to celebrate her return to the concert platform following maternity leave and to mark the release of her latest CD (the first in her complete recordings of Ravel’s piano music) (...). I hereby predict that her just launched CD audio recording (ARTS SUPERAUDIO CD 47763-8) will be hailed as a landmark in the history of records of these demanding pieces. (Jack Buckley)

Audiophile Audition (09.04.2013)


Young pianist Alessandro Mazzamuto shows some daring and flair in this first recording on the German Arts label. Young pianist Alessandro Mazzamuto shows some daring and flair in this first recording on the German Arts label. Mazzamuto has complete command of the keyboard (...). Each performance on the CD was technically first rate, and Mazzamuto is obviously giving the Rachmaninoff his full attention and passion. (Mel Martin)

Muzyka21, No. 2 (151), February 2013 (01.02.2013)


4 Stars. How much poetry brings this young pianist to Rachmaninoff's music! His design has this delicate, impressionistic coloring (beautiful in Elégie op. 3). (…) However, the vision Mazzamuto's is very consistent, beautiful and artistically mature. Let's hope that the career of this pianist develops in the desired direction and will result in subsequent, no less successful productions. (Łukasz Kaczmarek)

Medioevo (Italy), January 2013 (01.01.2013)


An excellent performance of 'Melodi Cantores Ensemble' and 'La Pifarescha', both conducted by Elena Sartori with sensitivity and masterly skill. (Franco Bruni)

Piano News 1-13 (01.01.2013)


Almost magically (Mazzamuto) draws us into a suggestive pull. (Anja Renczikowski)

musica 242 (Italy), Dec. 2012/Jan. 2013 (31.12.2012)


5 Stars. (Dario Miozzi)

4 Stars. (Riccardo Risaliti)

Muzyka21, grudzien 2012 (01.12.2012)


4 Stars. Enjoy the result of thorough research and careful preparation of music, both of the vocal group and the instrumental music. [This album seems] to be a valuable publishing in 2012 as an initiative commemorating the fourhundredth anniversary of the death of Giovanni Gabrieli. An interesting choice of repertoire, good performance, adequate technical quality recordings that should appeal to music lovers not only old, but audiophiles who appreciate this multi-channel reception in the SACD format in which they were written.
