The name Currentzis may flag up that this project is no ordinary recording. For a start, the recordings are being made in Currentzis’s home base, in Perm, which is 1400 km East of Moscow, and is the most easterly city in Europe. The recording embodies a radical new approach to orchestral virtuosity, score fidelity, vocal style and performance practice.
Le Nozze di Figaro is available as a Deluxe Edition featuring a 300 page bound book, released by sony classical.
