Composed by: Mozart, Wolfgang Amadeus
The BEST recording of this opera!
Inaugurated in 1958, Das Alte Werk quickly gained a reputation for historically informed, high-quality recordings. As the field of early music spread wider and wider and new paths were constantly broken, the imprint rapidly became the touchstone by which other labels were judged, not least for its epoch-making complete recording of Bach’s sacred cantatas. Originally released in 1992, this Nicolas Harnoncourt-led, 3CD set of Mozart’s La finta giardeniera, K196, features his Concentus musicus Wein and a fine singing cast that includes Thomas Moser, Edita Gruberova and Dawn Upshaw.
