Che Sera, Serail
227 years ago today, Mozart's "Die Entführung aus dem Serail" had its first-ever performance in Vienna. Leaving aside what this says about changed performance practice (I'm still working on wrapping my head around the vagaries of performance in classical-era Vienna, where the most long-running chamber-music series in Mozart's day was held at 7 a.m. on either Friday or Saturday morning), I am commemorating this event with one of my favorite renditions (listen to that low register) of an aria for which I retain a great, even irrational fondness.
