Salzburg 2013 Cosi Finally on Ö1 Radio. Hooray!

Guess why Ferrando and Guglielmo are jumping for joy? 

Tonight, Austria's Ö1 Radio is finally broadcasting the Salzburg Festival Cosi Fan TutteThe broadcast is at 19:30 (which is about 1:30 PM Eastern Time), and it should stay in the archive for about a week on (the amazing and handy) 7 Tage Ö1 (A week of radio when you want it!)

The performances did not garner glowing reviews (the Maestro seems to have been lackluster at best). But the singing must be at least semi-stellar. I mean, look at this cast list:

Malin Hartelius – Fiordiligi
Marie-Claude Chappuis – Dorabella
Martina Janková – Despina
Martin Mitterrutzner – Ferrando
Luca Pisaroni – Guglielmo
Gerald Finley – Don Alfonso

Konzertvereinigung Wiener Staatsopernchor
Wiener Philharmoniker
Christoph Eschenbach

Recorded in the Haus für Mozart in August as part of the Salzburger Festspiele 2013
