Claudio Abbado was undeniably the supreme Mahler conductor of our time. With his Lucerne Festival Orchestra he has set new standards in the field of classical music, especially in the interpretation of works by Gustav Mahler. The core of the orchestra is provided by the Mahler Chamber Orchestra, itself an élite body of players. Soloists like violinist Kolja Blacher, clarinettist Sabine Meyer, oboist Albrecht Mayer, violist Wolfram Christ, cellist Natalia Gutman, the Hagen Quartet and members of the Alban Berg Quartet to name just a few, make the Lucerne Festival Orchestra a star-studded ensemble.

"If anyone has recorded a lovelier Mozart recital in recent years, I've yet to hear it. In her early thirties, Kozená is now consummate mistress of her art. Her liquid high mezzo, with its easy upward extension, combines warmth with the bloom and freshness of youth, while her coloratura, on display in 'Al desio di chi t'adora' . . . is as brilliant and expressive as Bartoli's, yet without the Italian diva's intrusive aspirates . . . Fortepianist Jos van Immerseel is an equally sympathetic partner in an impassioned yet intimate performance . . ." ~Gramophone

Sir Charles Mackerras leads a fine performance of Mozart's last opera seria, a work that should be far better appreciated than it is. Full of dignity and poise, aria follows duet follows aria, fascinatingly scored, and exactly the correct length. The numbers are expressive and filled with the information we need to know these characters. Sesto, a travesty role, is taken by Magdalena Kozena, who follows in the footsteps of Teresa Berganza, Cecilia Bartoli, and Anne Sofie von Otter and proves their equal. Her gorgeous voice and technique shine through. –Robert Levine

Magdalena Kozena - Enchantment  Music

Magdalena Kozena - Enchantmen
2006 | 2 CD | FLAC+CUE | Booklet | 580Mb

Magdalena Kozena's voice is a wonder to listen to: her control, tone and range of colours are a real pleasure to enjoy, and her communication with the listener draws the listener in immediately. This disc is a selection chosen ostensibly by Kozena herself and which brings together a broad range of composers: Bach to Britten would be a fair description. The bias is towards the baroque, certainly the first of the two discs consists largely of early music, and even the second disc, which features Shostakovitch, Britten and Dvorak, still contains a substantial chunk of catgut and low pitch (by this I mean the instruments, and not the voice).

Gluck’s neglected masterpiece with Magdalena Kožená as a stunning Paride. The role of Paris, with more than half a dozen beautiful arias plus duets and trios, offers Magdalena Kožená everything she needs to charm listeners with her exceptional singing – so does the role of Helena for Susan Gritton, a long-standing ally of McCreesh and the Gabrielis. Paul McCreesh and his Gabrieli Consort & Players offer a splendid accompaniment.
