Hi-Res Booklet Distinctions 5 de Diapason - Qobuzissime
As Mozart wrote to his father in 1778: "I love it when an aria fits a singer as perfectly as a suit". This, by reasoning, means that virtually all of his greatest melodies – for both prima donna and secondary (supporting) roles - were designed for a specific type of voice. This means that anyone who wants to tackle numerous Mozart roles must know how to adapt their suit accordingly – no simple task, to say the least. Swiss soprano coloratura Regula Mühlemann, with her sumptuous, clear and precise vocals, has perfectly adapted to all of these melodies, as well as the wide range of genres, styles and characters explored. Among the works, one will find Exultate, Jubilate and also a melody that Mozart had written to be inserted in The Barber of Seville by Paisiello, although this did not materialize and Mozart left the work unfinished. Regula Mühlemann, whom we have already witnessed in Salzburg, Berlin, Paris, Zurich, and many other prestigious cities and settings, is accompanied here by the Basel Chamber Orchestra conducted by Umberto Benedetti Michelangeli, the nephew of famous Italian pianist Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli. © SM / Qobuz

Hi-Res Booklet Distinctions 5 Sterne Fono Forum Klassik
For the present album, star-soprano Regula Mühlemann has chosen works that date from the 17th and 18th centuries and include highly stylised accounts of Cleopatra’s life as well as exotically charged fantasies and entertaining interpretations of a remarkable and epoch-making woman and her fate. Above all, they tell us about the way in which Baroque poets and their composers thought and felt, while also allowing us to sense something of the queen’s true character through the powerful emotions of these works, through their juxtaposition of sensuous sonorities and energy-laden drama and through their simultaneous elements of severity and beauty. Hasse shows us her pride, Sartorio her seductiveness and beguiling nature, Scarlatti opposes her humanity laying behind her superb regality as stressed by Graun. Matheson rather speaks of her death and the soon-to-be ascent of her soul towards the Gods, with the myth of the snakebite – after which she will be reborn through Isis, all the more as the queen considered herself to be the earthly incarnation of the goddess Aphrodite, whose Egyptian counterpart is none other than Isis. The virtuosity of Mühlemann does wonders with these remarkable scores. © SM/Qobuz
