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 re-orchestration, extremely 'symphonic' and typical of the late Mozart- to such an extent that numerous specialists have thought they detected the composer's own hand.
