Teodor Currentzis has explained that the trilogy opera of Mozart text by Lorenzo da Ponte ("Le nozze di Figaro", "Don Giovanni" and "Così fan tutte") is a kind of tattoo of your group musicAeterna. In 2015 they concluded their recording, placed, immediately, in header of a catalog that grows by refusing to recognize the difficulties of the market, from Purcell to Shostakovich , or Rameau to Mahler .
The success of the musical offerings sponsored by Currentzis is, at this time, unquestionable, and reflects the background work and the courage of a performer whose best weapons are the quality, novelty and uniqueness. Even so, the opinions multiply, divided between the critical furious and the unqualified admiration. Speaking of Mozart, the director summarized the phenomenon with a simple observation: "When society is ageing, is to make an old Mozart, a Mozart harmless". And he represents the possibility of a future, active, fresh, committed and willing to defend the value of the restlessness and non-conformism. What has just been demonstrated in the Lucerne Festival 2019 , where he has directed four concerts dedicated to the composer of Salzburg, including the three operas on Da Ponte.
The considerations to each of the works are very different: coral and eloquent "Le nozze di Figaro", dramatically visceral "Don Giovanni", and musically stunning "Così fan tutte". All of them have been presented in Lucerne in concert version, with play of light, notes of costume trace the contemporary evolution stage, including sometimes the participation of the own Currentzis, just as capable of leaving the podium to stand in front of the soloists, and direct face-to-face as gesticulating with them . In a show that is rehearsed to the detail, tickets, greetings, interactions with the instrumental, they add to the atmosphere, either complete darkness before you run the overture of "Don Giovanni", with the nervous laughter of the audience during the minutes of waiting, the shadows bluish in the last act of "Le nozze", or the clarity of the light before "Così".
Mozart's subversive Figaro is one of the wittiest operas in the entire repertoire – and enchants with its wonderful music. The ideal kickoff for the Mozart-Da Ponte Cycle by Teodor Currentzis! Today #DonGiovanniUpdated Date: 19 September 2019, 06:00
