Mozart, You Drive Me Crazy!

Golda Schultz, Kammerakademie Potsdam, Antonello Manacorda

Mozart, You Drive Me Crazy! This is the title that the South African soprano Golda Schultz has decided to give to her new album, devoted to the female heroines of Don Giovanni, Cosi fan tutte and Le nozze di Figaro, roles that have marked her career from Berlin to The Metropolitan Opera:

'Why does Mozart drive me crazy? First of all, because his music, which sounds so easy when you listen to it, is extremely difficult to perform . . . And when I immerse myself in the world of Da Ponte and Mozart, I realise that there's a deep complexity to their female characters: they endure the toughest trials, but they also display great strength. In fact, these operas explore humanity from the feminine perspective: every single one of these women is constantly evolving. They show how human beings transcend trauma and how grief and pain can be overcome.'

The programme is conducted by another eminent Mozartian, Antonello Manacorda, with the Kammerakademie Potsdam.
