Now Available: Mozartissimo from Deutsche Grammophon
Now available: Deutsche Grammophon releases Mozartissimo, Rolando Villazón’s personal selection of the great arias of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The album features selections from Mozart’s operas, including Don Giovanni, Die Entführung aus dem Serail, Le Nozze di Figaro, and more.
In the album notes, Rolando shares a short message he wrote to Mozart upon first completing Mozart’s Letters, Mozart’s Life (edited by Robert Spaethling):
“I just finished reading your letters and all I want to say is: hey, Amadé, don’t go away, keep talking to me, my dear friend. But what follows is silence. So I take the score of Don Giovanni and the sparkling notes jump from the pages, and your voice breaks the silence. Oh, my most beloved composer, my dearest friend, señor Mozart de mi corazón, we still have so much, so much to talk about. My ears are open, my soul is ready, my voice is yours. ¡Vámonos!”
