Format: DVD

More Info:

"He was out to create something 'unheard-of'," observed conductor Nikolaus Harnoncourt beforehand. And true to form: What the conductor had to offer as he commenced his Mozart/Da Ponte cycle in the Theater an der Wien was something we "had never before heard like this" (Kurier). Nikolaus Harnoncourt, "master" of period performance practice, realized a project that had long been one of his dearest wishes: for the first time, he and his "original-sound orchestra" Concentus Musicus and his personal choice of singers were presenting the complete Mozart/Da Ponte cycle and harvesting the fruits of his Mozart research - an "enthusiastically acclaimed cycle!"
