    A slight sense of déjà vu here: see post #16 of this thread.

    But that's perfectly understandable. How could anybody, posting one of these arias every day, possibly keep track of what had and hadn't been posted already? Mozart composed so many of them, and nowadays there are so many recorded performances of each one!

    I love Mozart's concert arias. Always have done. When I first discovered their existence, 50+ years ago, I couldn't believe that they were so neglected. Couldn't understand why everyone didn't record them. In those days only a small number were available, on difficult-to-obtain LPs, most of which had to be ordered from the ends of the earth. One of my wildest and most improbable hopes was that some day I might manage to collect at least one recording, no matter how inadequate, of every one of them. Little did I know what riches lay ahead in the CD era....

    This seems to be the performance by Miranda van Kralingen and the European Sinfonietta conducted by Ed Spanjaard, available in a rather mixed Brilliant Classics box of Mozart concert arias.

    Funnily enough, prompted by the numerous remarkable recordings in this thread, I took it down from the shelves and revisited it only a few days ago, precisely because I recalled it as one of the best performances in that box. The singer seems to me to have the character just about perfect.

    The unfortunate protagonist (male), staggering from one catastrophe to another, has just been informed that he's married his own sister. In the first stanza of the aria (starting at 6:10), his thoughts turn to their baby:

    Misero pargoletto,
    il tuo destin non sai.
    Ah, non gli dite mai
    qual era il genitor.

    Ill-fated child! thou canst not feel
    thy future grief and shame:
    may never tongue thy birth reveal,
    or tell thy father’s name!

    Then in the second stanza (9:40), the vista broadens:

    Come in un punto, oh Dio,
    tutto cambiò d’aspetto!
    Voi foste il mio diletto,
    voi siete il mio terror.

    Ye gods, what sudden change I find!
    How soon my peace is fled.
    What late with rapture fill’d my mind,
    is now my greatest dread!

    After which, around 11:00 the singer transitions back to the first stanza, but in a tone colored with the broader thoughts that have now entered the protagonist's mind. A very fine piece of vocal acting.

    (The English translations are by John Hoole, in a clever little 18th century bilingual collection of Metastasio librettos.)
