La finta giardiniera was long one of the least-known operas of the young Mozart, perhaps because the original Munich version, sung in Italian, quickly disappeared from the repertoire until it was revived in German from 1779 onwards. A posthumous version from 1796 displays a skilful reorchestration, extremely ‘symphonic’ and typical of late Mozart – to such an extent that numerous specialists have though they detected the composer’s own hand. It is this so-called ‘Nám욝’ version that is recorded here by René Jacobs, who sees in this amazingly lively opera ‘a very ancient form of theatre, which blithely mingles farce with great passions (...) and elements typical of a “modern” initiatory opera’. A major rediscovery!
