Sometimes one must pause to marvel that humans are capable of creating such gorgeous, transcendent music. The late Sir Charles Mackerras was keen on 18th-century performance practice, and in a chamber setting The Magic Flute and the three Mozart/Da Ponte operas (The Marriage of Figaro, Così fan tutte, and Don Giovanni) come across as sublimely fresh. The world-class singers include Bo Skovhus (Don Giovanni), Christine Brewer (Donna Anna), Jerry Hadley (Don Ottavio; Tamino; Ferrando), Felicity Lott (Donna Elvira; Fiordiligi); June Anderson (The Queen of the Night), Barbara Hendricks (Tamina), Thomas Allen (Papageno), Alastair Miles (Figaro), Nuccia Focile (Susanna; Despina), Carol Vaness (Countess Almaviva), Susanne Mentzer (Cherubino), Gilles Cachemaille (Don Alfonso), and Alessandro Corbelli (Guglielmo).

"An immensely enjoyable version of Don Giovanni … as an overall interpretation, imbued with theatrical feeling, this is as good as any I have heard…. And the Scottish Chamber Orchestra are a first-rate group, with splendid brass, sensitive solo woodwind and neat and fine-toned strings…. This new [Così] has many virtues: it captures the vitality and sense of fun. The recorded quality is unusually clear and, carefully nurtured by Mackerras, the delights of Mozart's scoring can readily be heard."—Gramophone
