    In addition to being one of the leading and most acclaimed Lieder singers performing today, Christian Gerhaher is also a highly sought-after performer on the opera stage. Having performed in some of the world's top opera houses, Gerhaher was awarded the prestigious Laurence Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in Opera for his performance in Wagner's Tannhäuser at London's Royal Opera House.

    Here Gerhaher devotes a complete album to arias from the operas of Mozart, together with the Freiburger Barockorchester, one of the top period instrument ensembles worldwide with a strong connection to the Mozart repertoire. The Guardian has called it an "ambitious but thoroughly rewarding collection."
