It’s hard to find a version of Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte that’s as well sung as this 2003 Covent Garden production. Led by the eminent Mozartian, Sir Colin Davis, orchestra and singers present a warm, often intense vision of the opera, not as the fairy tale it’s often taken for, but as a human drama of the passage from misguided beliefs to mature knowledge of self...

Mozart wrote "The Magic Flute" in 1791, just after the French Revolution and just before he died. Haydn had introduced Mozart to Freemasonry, and the opera is full of the ideas (the autonomy of the individual, self-determination, appalling sexism), the ideals (power, wisdom, beauty), and the symbols (aprons, hammers, compasses, a pyramid with an all-seeing eye) of the Masons. Rituals, tests, initiations come into play.
Out of all operas I love Mozart's "The Magic Flute" the best. The opera seems a miracle in itself and one of the greatest blessings to the world of music. Everything is so perfect...

...The greatest pleasure of this sonically vivid recording is the splendid orchestral playing, from the taut brilliance of the overture to the delicate tracery of the strings in the final chorus. Jacobs is more than a musicologist/provacateur, he’s a conductor whose charisma comes across in recordings—just listen to the overtures to any of his Mozart operas or his “Jupiter’ Symphony...

What begins like a fairy-tale turns into a whimsical fantasy halfway between magic farce and Masonic mysticism: The Magic Flute links a love story with the great questions of the Enlightenment, juxtaposes bird-catcher charm with queenly vengeance, and bewitches the listener with music that mixes cheerful melodies, lovers’ arias, show-stopping coloraturas and mysterious chorales.

For anyone compiling a directory of the ‘greatest recordings’ of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra some nominations are easy to classify. Sir Thomas Beecham’s 1937/8 Berlin recording of Mozart’s The Magic Flute is certainly one of them. Originally re-mastered in 1991 it is pleasing to have this Nimbus set available in the catalogue...

The Arthaus Musik DVD is a live performance by the Glyndebourne Opera in 1978. It was directed by John Cox and designed by David Hockney. During the overture, first one sees Hockney and his assistants creating the design, then the cast is identified when Cox directs them, and finally the conductor, Bernard Haitink and the orchestra are shown. Hockney’s design is brilliant and faithful to both the magical theme and the ancient Egyptian motif of the opera. Most notable are the colorful sets and the design for the animals. When the Queen of the Night enters, the background changes to a starry sky. The antics of the animals when Tamino plays his flute to entice them are visually delightful. During the trial scene, Pamina and Tamino first walk back into fire and then into rolling waves of water... Bob Rose, FANFARE

And now - ladies and gentlemen - as an intermezzo - I present to you a "real classical" album just for art's sake and LOL.

A short bio of Madame Jenkins appears in a wonderful book called "American Eccentrics" by Carl Sifakis. It explains the history (or is it hysteria?) of this most maligned and misunderstood of American coloraturas. The most telling of anecdotes regarding M. Jenkins is that she was riding in a New York taxi that crashed. She was going to sue the taxi company until she discovered that she could sing ". . .a higher F than ever before...". Need I say more? Apparently, she sent the cabbie a box of expensive cigars as a thank-you.
The staff of a classical section of a large CD store in New York City regularly puts on this recording about 15 minutes to closing. They inevitably get several "what the hell is that" questions, a sale or two, and clear out the rest of the patrons in short order - most of them shaking their heads in disbelief.
The "Queen of the Night" aria from Mozart's Magic Flute is, well, magical (sort of). One is never quite sure to cringe or duck as she squawks her way to the high note at the end.

A great party CD - but.......... make sure your guests have had at least five stiff drinks first !!!!!!. And - in case you survived this breath taking album - please, let me have your review in the comments the next day (after you killed your hang-over) !!!!!
