Genius Austrian composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's sacred solo motets like his lively operas captivates with their simplicity, melodiousness and virtuosity. Especially in baroque and early classical music soprano Elina Shimkus shines the most, as evidenced by her recent success, singing Mozart's earliest operas staged in Milan. Quick-witted Suzanna, cunning Despina will turn into an obstinate Tamiri, while the choir in Mozart’s imagination probably had the likes of flying angelic and sonorous voices of the boys.
