240 Hours, 22 Pounds: A Mammoth Mozart Box Set Aims At More Than 'Complete'

240 Hours, 22 Pounds: A Mammoth Mozart Box Set Aims At More Than 'Complete' | Mozart 3.0 | Scoop.it
The new complete edition, commemorating the 225th anniversary of the Austrian composer's death, is an extravagant Mozart resource.
Tim van Motman's insight:
Eisen about the recordings of the piano concertos by Robert Levin: "Bob is kind of one of the most sensitive players I know. We've talked about these performances for a long time. He's so thoughtful about what we think are the really important aspects of Mozart performance, which is that Mozart is so attentive to detail. I mean, if you look at his scores, it's very remarkable the extent to which he has notated — and again, I'm going back to the surface of the music. He noted the articulation for example. I'm sure that someone like Mozart thought, "If I'm playing a chord, this isn't just a chord." You know, this chord has a certain weight depending on its context — whether it's accompanying, whether it's a bold, aggressive gesture that's meant to point to a specific moment in the piece. And Bob thinks about those issues very deeply. And so he's very careful to weight the voices that he's bringing out. And that's why it's tremendously expressive."

Mozart's Don Giovanni: in pictures

Mozart's Don Giovanni: in pictures | Mozart 3.0 | Scoop.it
With its story of rapes, murder, fine wines and fancy dress, Don Giovanni offers plenty for directors to get their teeth into. The results might not be coherent and they might well be controversial, but they are almost always colourful. Ahead of Richard Jones’s new staging for English National Opera we look at key productions of the last decade.

Mozart's Music of Friends

Mozart's Music of Friends | Mozart 3.0 | Scoop.it
Follow the exclusive online resources with audio & video of the new MozartEraBook by MozartScholar @eklorman #ff https://t.co/NFApPWjvvz
Tim van Motman's insight:
About the book: "In 1829 Goethe famously described the string quartet as “a conversation among four intelligent people.” Inspired by this metaphor, Edward Klorman’s study draws on a wide variety of documentary and iconographic sources to explore Mozart’s chamber works as “the music of friends.” Illuminating the meanings and historical foundations of comparisons between chamber music and social interplay, Klorman infuses the analysis of sonata form and phrase rhythm with a performer’s sensibility. He develops a new analytical method called multiple agency that interprets the various players within an ensemble as participants in stylized social intercourse – characters capable of surprising, seducing, outwitting, and even deceiving one another musically."

Photos of Mantua, Italy - Exploring Italian Renaissance | Mozart 3.0 | Scoop.it
Teatro Bibiena Stepping into Teatro Scientifico del Bibiena was like finding myself within a beehive and looking directly at honeycombs surrounding me in every which way. This was a place where I could feel an intense energy, feel the ghosts of people, of individuals sitting all around in those balconies from centuries past, laughing or contemplating quietly, looking down at that broad stage. Watching art in motion. Its jarringly stunning 17th century Baroque style was designed by Antonio Galli Bibiena whom the theater is named after. Inaugurated in 1769, the theater is filled with warm brown monochromatic boxes and frescoes. At the young age of 13, a certain prodigy named Mozart held a concert there just a year after its opening and it remains in active use for performances and concerts.
