Synopsis

Album Description
Bryn Terfel and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart have been very good to one another. No composer has provided the great Welsh bass-baritone with more congenial roles, and the singer in turn has enlivened his portrayals with remarkable flights of musical imagination. In celebration of the 250th anniversary of Mozart's birth, Terfel offers a new collection of Mozart arias: Tutto Mozart! With Sir Charles Mackerras conducting the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Bryn has one of the most celebrated Mozart conductors of our time at his side. Highlights include the famous trio from Così Fan Tutte "Soave sia il vento" and "Ein Mädchen oder Weibchen" from The Magic Flute.

CD Reviews

A popular artist at the top of his form
Santa Fe Listener | Santa Fe, NM USA | 11/14/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"
Bryn Terfel emerged suddenly as a world-famous singer because of his ability to communicate, as well as the natural gift of a warm, flexible voice that allows for a wide range of character types. Best known for Falstaff and his Mozart roles, particularly Figaro and Leporello, Terfel is one of those artists who can expand as far as his horizons happen to be. Here he is in great voice and top form, but even better, he's stretching himself and not relying on familiar gimmicks.

Nineteen baritone arias would be a lot by any measure, so to avoid sameness, Terfelt mixes the very familiar (multiple selections from Cosi, Figaro, and Don Giovanni) with obscure but beautiful concert and opera arias. The inclusion of ensemble numbers like Soave sia il vento from Cosi is a wonderful touch--we really feel we're being immersed in "Tutto Mozart." Are there any weaknesses? Not really. Tefel's not able to sound sinister or ruthless, so his Don Giovanni is too much of a teddy bear. As magnetic as he is on stage, Terfel's Figaro isn't vocally very funny. but no one can quibble with his extraordinary musical instincts, which are fully on display in this triumphant CD, one of his very best."
Bryn Terfel: Expanding his Range of Mozart Gems
Grady Harp | Los Angeles, CA United States | 03/07/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"That Bryn Terfel is in possession of one of the most beautiful baritone voices on the stage today is a given. Not only is his voice rich in hue, able to maintain a beauty of tone throughout a large range, but he is also so intrinsically musical that he never allows 'showmanship' to overcome the composer's intentions.

In this superb 'recital' of an album Terfel trips through the arias of Leporello, Figaro, Count Almaviva, Guglielmo, Don Giovanni, and brings surprises to roles he has yet to create on the stage. Yet he also includes some rarities such as the late Mozart concert aria 'Cosi dunque tradisci' as well as some lighter duets from 'Bastien und Bastienne' and 'Der Stein der Weisen'. He is joined by the luminous soprano Miah Persson in the duets of Papageno and Papagena form 'Die Zauberflote'. In every instance the result is fresh Mozart in as captivating a style as is heard on any recording. Sir Charles Mackerras and the Scottish Chamber Orchestra provide the sensitive collaboration. Bryn Terfel simply has it all and this CD proves it! Grady Harp, March 07"
Tutto Mozart - Bryn Terfel
Renate H. Moser | Chicago, IL United States | 05/12/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"As was expected, Bryn Terfel's rendition of the Mozart arias is superb. A specific mention should be made of his flawless diction in both German and Italian. Terfel belongs in the category of truly great artists not only singers. Every lover of Mozart and great singing should buy this CD."
