Apollo et Hyacinthus


Following its successful full length opera, Artaxerxes, The Mozartists return with the first in an epic series of Mozart operas Apollo et Hyacinthus. Named in The Guardian as one of ‘The Best Classical albums of 2012’.

The Mozartists have mounted two staged productions of Mozart’s Apollo et Hyacinthus (1998 and 2006), with both receiving wide critical acclaim; The Independent stated, “Classical Opera’s polished debut in Apollo et Hyacinthus proved a pearl beyond price. Here was a work of staggering beauty riddled with sweet noises like Caliban’s enchanted isle.”

“Classical Opera’s ambitious Mozart opera cycle for Linn opens auspiciously with this delightful work from the 11- year-old composer. Page has assembled a young, well-nigh perfect cast of singers who bring off the project with great aplomb, and the recording is up to Linn’s highest standards” – Guy Weatherall, Classical Music
