Les Arts Florissants's «Die Zauberflöte» - plus my social networks

Les Arts Florissants's historically informed version of Mozart's Die Zauberflöte (1791) - played with period instruments - comes serenely to the listener, at an appointed slower pace than other large-orchestral performances, and this brings forth a welcoming freshness. I highlight Dessay's Königin der Nacht - throughout, her coloraturas sound just like an instrument; which can be heard best in this version's slower-paced Der Hölle Rache aria - and Scharinger's Papageno, sung with a lot of heart. Overall, the singing in this recording is first-rate. There is a quiet period-piece dignitas here, very moving and authentic, belied by the light-hearted, gracious playing. One of the most original and precious versions of this singspiel already recorded.

I take this occasion to remember my readers about my Facebook page and my Instagram profile.
I know this blog is not being uptaded almost per diem as before, but, nonetheless, you can follow my Facebook posts and Instagram snaps, published (for the time being) at a more circadian pace than here.

So, if you don't follow my social networks already, go there and press 'follow'. You'll find me there easilly these days.
