A joy for the ears, and soul

"I agree with the writer who once wrote, that when asked his religion, replied "Mozart." This man created the most sublime music ever heard by human ears & this opera is right at the pinnacle of his creative powers. This particular version is the definitive one; if you own no other this is the one to buy. I have listened to other versions-none holds a candle to this one. Curd Jurgens IS the incarnation of the Bassa-listen to any other Bassa & be disappointed. The duet by Christiane Eda-Pierre & Stuart Burrows at the end of Act 3 still brings tears to my eyes, even after years of listening to it. This is music for the ears of God, and the human soul. In Mozart's suite of operas, this surely is his most musically creative. Though Don Giovanni is considered the most perfect opera ever written, this must rank as one of the most entertaining and moving, on a human level. Don't wait-run out & buy this one NOW!!"
Gold in your record library.

"I love this CD. Maybe, we can't compare this opera with Don Giovanni, Cosi Fan Tutte or the Magic Flute; written when Mozart was older; but all the musicians in this album are fantastic. Then, we can say that this is one of the bests versions of The Abduction from the Serail that I ever listened. The sound is perfect and all the elements are in the right position. It's hardly recomended for all kind of classical music lovers."
Un 'Rapto' muy disfrutable

"Este es, sin ser un 'Rapto' definitivo, un 'Rapto' muy disfrutable. Primero por la inteligente direccion de orquesta que realiza SIR COLIN DAVIS de la partitura mozartiana, y luego por la interesantisima Konstanze que interpreta CHRISTIANE EDA PIERRE, por el experimentado Belmonte de STUART BORROWS y la genial Blonde de NORMA BORROWES. A menos nivel se situa el mas que correcto Osmin de ROBERT LLOYD y muy correcto tambien el Pedrillo de ROBERT TEAR.
El sonido es muy bueno para la epoca, y el precio es modico, lo cual convierten a este disco en una eleccion sumamente interesante.
El problema es que, aunque las interpretaciones de este disco tengan mucho nivel, todos los personajes han caido ya en manos de otros solistas que han hecho de ellos creaciones referenciales. Y ninguna creacion referencial se halla en este disco."
