Mozart: Le nozze di Figaro CD (Yannick Nézet-Séguin)

Yannick Nezet-Seguin’s 'completely gripping, high-contrast' Figaro is 'a brilliant triumph', wrote Badische Zeitung of the July 2015 concert performance recorded here, while heaping praise on Luca Pisaroni’s 'thrilling' Figaro, Thomas Hampson’s Count 'illuminating every word', Sonya Yoncheva’s Countess 'recalling Callas’ vocal colours', Angela Brower’s 'fascinatingly delicate, sensitive' Cherubino and Anne Sofie von Otter’s 'wonderfully perceptive, charming Marcellina', all in a performance crowned by Christiane Karg’s 'enchanting' Susanna and Rolando Villazon as Basilio, 'who had the audience at his feet'.
