'Vado ma Dove'

Audio for this story from Performance Today is not available.

Here's a rarity by Mozart. When he was working on his opera Cosi Fan Tutte, Mozart had to audition some singers. We'll hear a concert aria he wrote as sort of a test piece for them. "Vado ma Dove," sung by mezzo-soprano Magdalena Kozena, at the Mostly Mozart Festival in New York's Avery Fisher Hall. Louie Langree is conducting.
