Smoke Notes

John Eliot Gardiner's outstanding series of recordings of the seven mature Mozart operas took the musical world by storm in the 1990s. They set new standards of singing and orchestral performance , bringing a new dimension to these great works in their vitality and vividness – and making them natural first choices for the consumer.

Now all seven operas are brought together in a compact 18-CD box set, offered at a super value price, in a Limited Edition of just 10,000 sets.

Set Includes:

CD 1-3: Idomeneo: “Unless and until further research proves otherwise, this version will remain the definitive recording of Mozart's early masterpiece for a long time to come …” (Gramophone)

CD 4-5: The Abduction from the Seraglio: “The overture immediately establishes the extra zest of the performance... at once rich, pure and agile, the close is triumphant.” (Penguin Guide)

CD 6-8: The Marriage of Figaro: “Bryn Terfel and Alison Hagley make an outstanding Figaro and Susanna … so much more a realization of the work than simply a performance of its music.” (Gramophone)

CD 9-11: Don Giovanni: “Vividly dramatic, beautifully paced and deeply expressive... A recording that sets new standards for period performance and view with the finest of traditional versions.” (Penguin Guide)

CD 12-14: Così fan tutte: “The full flavour of Così, its effervescence as well as its deeper qualities, comes over more intensely as a result … put this among the finest versions of Così.” (Penguin Guide)

CD 15-16 La clemenza di Tito: “Above all there is an overriding sense of a true ensemble with chorus, orchestra and soloists in complete harmony” (Gramophone)

CD 17-18 The Magic Flute: “An electrifying account … Gardiner is helped enormously by his choice of singer as Pamina, a young German soprano with a ravishingly pure and sweet voice, flawlessly controlled, Christiane Oelze.”
