The motet "Exsultate, jubilate", K. 165 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, recorded at the Mozart Week 2002 in Salzburg. With Luba Orgonásová (soprano), Ton Koopman (conductor and organ) and the Mozarteum Orchestra Salzburg. Luba Orgonásová hails from Slovakia and sings at all the major opera-houses of the world. She is one of the most sought-after interpreters of lyrical coloratura parts in the fields of opera and concert performance. She was one of Herbert von Karajan's last discoveries: in 1990 she sang the part of Marzelline (Fidelio) at the Salzburg Festival - a role that marked the beginning of her meteoric career. The Dutch musician Ton Koopman was born in 1944 and ranks among the outstanding specialists in the field of historical performance practice. He studied organ, harpsichord and musicology in Amsterdam and turned to conducting during his training. From the very beginning, he used original instruments and combined theory and practice into a fascinating, historically well-founded interpretation of the works. In 1979 he founded the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra. As a performing artist and teacher, Koopman has made decisive contributions to the renaissance of the music of the 17th and 18th centuries.
