"Both singers and players handle their lovely phrases like jewels and throughout the opera the performance, sparkling, tender, witty, vivacious, by turns, gives the maximum of musical enjoyment. I cannot think that this superb performance and recording will be surpassed." - The Gramophone, 1955
Karajan's 1954 EMI Philharmonia recording of Mozart's Cosí fan tutte, with Elisabeth Schwarzkopf, Nan Merriman, Lisa Otto, Leopold Simoneau, Rolando Panerai and Sesto Bruscantini is still considered one of the greatest ever made of the composer's final opera buffa. This new Ambient Stereo XR remastering refreshes the recording and reveals even more depth and beauty than previously imagined in this fabulous production.
