...But Mozart for Their Own Pleasure - I

The Angels sing Bach for God,
but Mozart for their own pleasure.


If anything could make me believe in the existence of a good and loving Creator it would be the music of Mozart.


Le Nozze di Figaro - the Letter Duet
Ileana Cotrubas and Kiri Te Kanawa - John Pritchard conducting
Glyndebourne 1973.

oh that was so nice. Although I loves me some Bach. The eldest daughter gets annoyed by Mozart. Says he's overrated. I'm so playing this for her.

The "Canzonetta sull aria" is one of my faves as well. Though, I think my favorite recording is Te Kanawa and the late Lucia Popp. Regardless of favorites, it was just lovely to run across this, this afternoon.
