Greco-Russian conductor Teodor Currentzis had caused quite a controversy in the operatic world. Settling in the provincial city of Perm, he formed a historical-instrument (although hardly a historical-performance) group called MusicAeterna and shaped it to reflect his unique musical visions. This release is one of a group of three devoted to Mozart's operas with libretti by Lorenzo da Ponte, whom Currentzis regards as a kind of revolutionary comparable to the most outrageous figures in rock music, and his reading of Così fan tutte is explicitly rock-influenced. This doesn't mean that there are guitars or electric instruments, but listen to some of the overture for an idea: blazing speed, slashing attacks that include bow noise from the strings, and a heavy continuo in the recitatives that at times includes a hurdy-gurdy. Plainly there is no historical evidence for such a practice, and it's safe to say that Currentzis' reading is not the music Mozart heard in his head. There are some pretty well-known singers on this release, including soprano Simone Kermes as Fiordiligi, but they function pretty much as cogs in Currentzis' machinery. The recitatives have a fascinating skittery quality, and when Currentzis does let up on the hell-for-leather intensity, he creates beautifully delicate slow arias. Opinions, both critical and audience-formed, on Currentzis are sharply polarized, and this release will do nothing to change that situation. His backers include the executive staff at Sony Classical, who provide a luxurious hardbound book with libretto of the kind previously only seen on labels that get government support, and sprang for a studio recording in Russia (the edgy sound is well-matched to the concept). Listener reactions to this are necessarily going to be highly subjective, but note that this recording has one trait common to many paradigm-shifting performances: the players seem to be having a great deal of fun, even if (or perhaps because) they probably had to unlearn everything they had been trained in so that they could follow their conductor's instructions.

This release is one of a group of three devoted to Mozart's operas with libretti by Lorenzo da Ponte, whom Currentzis regards as a kind of revolutionary comparable to the most outrageous figures in rock music, and his reading of Così fan tutte is explicitly rock-influenced. This doesn't mean that there are guitars or electric instruments, but listen to some of the overture for an idea: blazing speed, slashing attacks that include bow noise from the strings, and a heavy continuo in the recitatives that at times includes a hurdy-gurdy. Plainly there is no historical evidence for such a practice, and it's safe to say that Currentzis' reading is not the music Mozart heard in his head. There are some pretty well-known singers on this release, including soprano Simone Kermes as Fiordiligi, but they function pretty much as cogs in Currentzis' machinery. The recitatives have a fascinating skittery quality, and when Currentzis does let up on the hell-for-leather intensity, he creates beautifully delicate slow arias. Opinions, both critical and audience-formed, on Currentzis are sharply polarized, and this release will do nothing to change that situation. His backers include the executive staff at Sony Classical, who provide a luxurious hardbound book with libretto of the kind previously only seen on labels that get government support, and sprang for a studio recording in Russia (the edgy sound is well-matched to the concept). Listener reactions to this are necessarily going to be highly subjective, but note that this recording has one trait common to many paradigm-shifting performances: the players seem to be having a great deal of fun, even if (or perhaps because) they probably had to unlearn everything they had been trained in so that they could follow their conductor's instructions.
