Mozart, W.A.: Mitridate, re di Ponto

30 January 2012  American Record Guide
Charles H. Parsons

The teenage Mozart’s Mitridate has been well served on CD. I particularly like Norrington’s “period” interpretation. This new recording from Denmark is a most worthy competitor, possibly the best. While the cast is unknown outside of Scandinavia, their singing brings pleasure. They sound like a fresh, young lot, enthusiastic, committed to Mozart and beautiful singing. Fischer gives a crisp, authoritative performance. 

There are a few details here that are not in the other recordings. The orchestration has been freshened up in keeping with the traditions of Mozart’s time - trumpets and timpani have been added to the overture and three arias. Such additions were traditional in music dealing with martial themes and arias dealing with revenge and/or rage. Richard Lewis has also written a short cadenza for the famous soprano aria with horn obbligato ‘Lungi da te, mio bene’. All of the additions work well.
