Mozart Arias

This CD contains a motet and seven concert arias. Lenneke has chosen arias that are all theatrical, but also very diverse. ‘Ah, lo previdi!’, for example, is dramatic and melancholic while ‘Ah, se in ciel, benigne stelle’ is real coloratura: rapid and spectacular. The differences between the young and the old Mozart can be heard clearly as well. His early arias have a simple structure while his later works are more chromatic and complex. However, all his works are brilliant, authentic, credible and perfectly structured. There is a purity about both the arias and the character roles – nothing artificial about them at all. Lenneke Ruiten is proud of the result: “It was wonderful to be able to work with the Concertgebouw Chamber Orchestra and the conductor Ed Spanjaard. Recording such beautiful music with the world’s best musicians is a dream come true! During the recording period, a creative process unfolded; we had the freedom and the opportunity to be creative, to take risks.
