"Among period performances William Christie's stands out," wrote Gramophone of this recording of Die Zauberflöte, an interpretation that falls "sweetly and lovingly on the ear". Hans-Peter Blochwitz is "probably the finest Tamino around", Rosa Mannion a Pamina of "much charm [who] blossoms into maturity and indeed passion" and Natalie Dessay a "magnificent Queen of the Night … with ample weight and tonal glitter." Anton Scharinger makes a stylish, witty Papageno and Reinhard Hagen a Sarastro of both warmth and authority.
