Description

Premièred at the Vienna Hoftheater on 1 May 1786, Wolfang Amadeus Mozart’s and Lorenzo Da Ponte’s Le nozze di Figaro may be safely regarded as one of the greatest operatic successes of all times. Yet its success was not entirely due to Mozart’s music: on the contrary, because of the extraordinary demands it placed on the orchestra (especially the woodwinds), the music even posed an obstacle to the work’s spread outside the German-speaking countries. At least equally responsible for the opera’s success was the librettist Lorenzo Da Ponte, who managed to transform a topical and socio-critical stage play into an opera libretto as effective as it is amusing.

Many of the sources for Mozart’s first opera from the Lorenzo Da Ponte trilogy only became available to scholars again after the ‘New Mozart Edition’ volume was published. These include the autograph scores of acts 3 and 4, now held at the Biblioteka Jagiello ka in Kraków, significant portions of the original sets of parts and acts 2 to 4 of the conductor’s copy from the first performance of 1786.

These original sources, now available again, offer compelling solutions to several previously unresolved questions.

Barenreiter are the best scores you can get for Mozart operas so everything is good about them
The low score on value for money is due to the conversion rate from GBP to EUR which put the price up by 30%. In GBP it was £37 which should convert to EUR47.00 at the time of purchase. However when I changed the currency the price shot up to EUR61.00.
