Because by Mozart while the ink was still wet , small cuts, and minor alterations to the Italian the manuscript was probably delivered piecemeal, Mozart carefully marked most of text. Some revisions are more consequential. As was his version of the Duettino of Susanna and Marcellina.

Vocally there is a lot to remember here: the glittering Susanna of Christiane Karg, the marvellously detailed and expressive Marcellina of Anne Sofie von Otter. Luca Pisaroni, Figaro, has a fine voice and is expressive with words. Verbally and expressively he is masterly. The scene with Susanna at the beginning of act III and his big aria that follows constitute a high-spot in this recording. August The Chamber Orchestra of Europe is marvelous -- the strings silky but capable of sharp-edged attacks, the winds alternately spicy and sweet, and their ensemble work impeccable.
This latest release is no exception. Christiane Karg as Susanna and Luca Pisaroni make an ideal pair in this performance, with especially impressive warm and solid low notes from Karg in the aria "Deh vieni non tardar. The most striking quality of this "Figaro" is the transparency of the orchestral sound, enabled by DG's use of multiple, closely placed mics.
It features a stellar cast. Christiane Karg proves a lively lynchpin as Susanna, her performance alert and bright. The same can be said of Luca Pisaroni, whose baritone is lithe and characterful. Thomas Hampson proves he still has plenty of voice, and his Conte sounds duly amorous, confused and menacing in turn.
Sonya Yoncheva turns in a grand Contessa.

Maurizio Muraro hits just the right note as Bartolo. The COE play beautifully. Pisaroni's dark-toned Figaro is dangerous in "Se vuol ballare", bitter in "Aprite un po' quelgi occhi". As Susanna, Karg moves effortlessly from the spirited girl of Act 1 -- there's some delightfully playful decoration to the last phrases of the second duet -- to a tender, womanly account of "Deh vieni". She blends perfectly with the Countess in the Letter Duet.
Angela Brower, a soprano-sounding mezzo, is a spirited, coltish Cherubino. He shows some deftness and grace. He allows some lilt. He favors the fast and punchy -- but he is not the Energizer Bunny. He is lean, pliant, smooth, accurate, and personable. He is well-nigh instrumental no offense to singers. He is almost an ideal Mozartean in opera. Christiane Karg, the German soprano, is Susanna, and she sings beautifully.
It keeps going: rhythmic drive is not lacking, as the overture and Act 3 dance sequence particularly demonstrate, which is not a minor virtue. Von Otter proves to be an unusually sympathetic, attractively-voiced Marcellina.
Bulgarian soprano Sonya Yoncheva makes for a most affecting broken-hearted Countess early on in her Act II aria and adds an alluring "Dove sono" later. Maurizio Muraro bring an imposing comic bass to Dr. The presence of an audience is hardly noticeable except for a bare handful of muted collective laughs -- and praise be at a time of cost-cutting in the twilight of the CD era, the thick page booklet contains a full libretto! October The singers are to be commended for the alert realism of their recitatives and their interactive characterisations.
Thomas Hampson is a rock-steady Count. Sonya Yoncheva gives the Countess some real passion in "Dove sono" and elsewhere. Luca Pisaroni's Figaro is confident and spirited. Thomas Hampson is the Count, one of his best roles, and to his credit he sounds much the same as in It's a carefully considered performance.
Christina Karg, a new luminary in the great succession of pure-voiced lighter German sopranos, gives the best performance here, elegantly vocalized and endearingly characterized. The young American mezzo Angela Brower is an appealing Cherubino. She's splendid in her first aria. Maurizio Muraro is a deep voiced basso buffo, who wisely goes for bluster, not refinement.
In sum, this performance is a very high-level ensemble effort. It is beautifully recorded, and I look forward to returning to it in the future. The singing is universally excellent -- Sonya Yoncheva's Contessa is passionate and glowing, one of the best portrayals in years. Likewise Luca Pisaroni's Figaro may be the standard for the youthful century.
Thomas Hampson's third Conte is more reflective, less declamatory, a burnished and well-considered performance. Christiane Karg does fine work as Susanna, with no noticeable weakness and much spot-on emotional fervency. There is much, much to enjoy in this performance. Great fun, expertly rendered.
It features singers who combine vocal accomplishment with musical and dramatic intelligence. Pisaroni relishes articulating his native language; every word of da Ponte's libretto is a delight. Christiane Karg is a good match for him. The Countess is Sonya Yoncheva, who so naturally conveys vulnerability that just her vocal tone makes the character's plight tangible.
Yoncheva produces one of the most beautiful sounds in opera today, making her performance as sensuously enjoyable as it is affecting.
Angela Brower, as Cherubino, deploys an appealing lyric mezzo of so bright a tinge that you could mistake her for a soprano. She nicely distinguishes her two arias. Von Otter's intact virtues as a singing musician justify the inclusion of her Act IV aria, a moment of delight. But the show belongs to Nezet-Seguin, who offers a reading so well gauged, and so bursting with life, that it continually provoked me to think, "What a wonderful opera!
