There's a surprise on Sabine's new Mozart album. Wink, wink, nudge, nudge.
No spoilers, promise.
Sabine Devieilhe's stunning new Mozart album, out this month and already awarded the 'Radio Classique's Choice' in Classica's Choc de l'Année Awards, explores the composer's love for and fascination with the Weber Sisters: Aloysia (his first love), Constanze (his Plan B, a.k.a. his devoted wife), and Josepha (his queen of the night).
It's well documented that Mozart had a special sense of humour, particularly where women were concerned. So French soprano Sabine Devieilhe, who incarnates the most important women in his life for this unique concept album, has hidden a Mozartian wink somewhere in the 72 minutes of music on The Weber Sisters.
A final surprise that gets right to the bottom of Mozart, you might say.
Mozart: The Weber Sisters is out this month.
