Mozart: Le Nozze di Figaro

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - James Leonard
There are folks out there who never care to attend another Measure for Measure, who never care to watch another Modern Times, and who never care to hear another "Le Nozze di Figaro" because to them, comedy is obviously a lesser art form than tragedy. To them one can only say: "too bad!" because as this immensely musical and enormously humorous recording of "Figaro" led by René Jacobs proves, there are still wonderful things to be found in the work if one knows where to look. For Jacobs, where to look is not only in the music, not only in the humor, but deep into the humanity of the work. Jacobs and his terrific cast perform "Figaro" not as a comedy of manners but rather ...

All Music Guide - James Leonard
There are folks out there who never care to attend another Measure for Measure, who never care to watch another Modern Times, and who never care to hear another "Le Nozze di Figaro" because to them, comedy is obviously a lesser art form than tragedy. To them one can only say: "too bad!" because as this immensely musical and enormously humorous recording of "Figaro" led by René Jacobs proves, there are still wonderful things to be found in the work if one knows where to look. For Jacobs, where to look is not only in the music, not only in the humor, but deep into the humanity of the work. Jacobs and his terrific cast perform "Figaro" not as a comedy of manners but rather as a comedy of people, people with strengths and weaknesses, with loves and hates, with hearts and minds and souls and, especially, with bodies. Simon Keenlyside's Count is not just a nobleman looking to have his way with his servant's wife; he is a man who knows what he's doing but can't see any reason to stop himself. Véronique Gens' Countess is not just a woman wronged; she's a woman in love who can't believe her husband could wrong her. Patrizia Ciofi's is not just a servant looking for a way to avoid being her employer's next sexual conquest; she's a woman looking for a way to assert her own independence. Lorenzo Regazzo's "Figaro" is not just a servant looking for a way to circumvent his employer's habit of despoiling the wives of his employees; he's a man looking for a way to best another man. All of them are first-rate singers, but also first-rate actors, and the combination is as musically brilliant as it is dramatically compelling. And, leading the superb period instrument ensemble Concerto Köln, Jacobs is as much a stage director as a musical director, and the combination results in a "Figaro" that could convince even those who've tired of comedy that there are still wonderful things to be found in the work. Harmonia Mundi's sound -- not to mention its sumptuous packaging -- is rich, deep, and detailed.
