With James Levine's masterful conducting, Mozart's sublime score works its colorful magic in this upstairs/downstairs drama. Ruggero Raimondi (Figaro) and Kathleen Battle (Susannah) are the servants, caught up in the ongoing domestic drama of the Count and Countess (Thomas Allen and Carol Vaness). Only all is not what it seems, and the battle lines keep shifting in the most unexpected ways. Frederica von Stade is Cherubino, the young page body who's in love with love and who keeps complicating everyone's best laid plans at exactly the wrong times

Messiah by George Frideric Handel( Sound Recording )
31 editions published between 1966 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 348 libraries worldwide
Handel's 'Messiah' is already very well-represented on the CD market. Yet this is a very special version, carefully crafted, under the fine direction of Daniela Dolci, with singers Miriam Feuersinger, Flavio Ferri-Benedetti, Dino Lüthy and Raitis Grigalis joining the ensemble Musica Fiorita. For obtaining the nuanced sound aesthetics which define this recording, the chosen cast is deliberately small: alongside the soloists, two voices per part were used for the choir, whereas the instrumental ensemble is composed of two violins and one oboe per part as well as a viola, cello, bassoon, violone, two theorbos, two harpsichords and two positive organs for the basso continuo group. The optimal balance is achieved with the use of natural trumpets without finger holes. All in all, a welcome breath of fresh air for one of the best-known compositions of all times
