Format: Audio CD
Daniel Barenboim, lord of sausages, recorded K 492, K 527 & K 588 with the Berlin Phil in the early Nineties - those were the days. Such a project is unimaginable in the current climate. Received wisdom says that his Cosi is the best of the triptych. All three have sunk without trace. Is an exhumation worthwhile?

Not here, I suggest. This Don Giovanni is less than the sum of its parts and in themselves, they ain't worth much.

The Berlin Philharmonic recorded Don Giovanni with Karajan in January 1985 - it was the star of the endeavour. Seven years later, the Klang resembles La Grande Armée in its retreat from Moscow. While the Berliners sound better than what they do in contemporary recordings with Abbado, the wider decline is palpable. It's evident in the Overture itself - compare DB at 2'10" with HvK at 2'22": one no longer "feasts with panthers."

Furlanetto was a wonderful Leporello in the earlier recording too. He nailed the comedic element. Here, with little modification, he translates it to the title-role: it doesn't work. It's the antithesis of the Don-as-T-Rex in Mozart: Don Giovanni / Furtwangler / Salzburg Festival. The deus ex machine of the Act II Finale is unjustifiable when the Don in question poses no threat to anyone and he's a buffoon to boot. At any given point, one expects him to wolf down the dish of chicken.

No relief is forthcoming from John Tomlinson as Leporello. How he wobbles his way through the Catalogue Aria. His singing at "Nella bionda egli ha l'usanza / Di lodar la gentilezza" is awful. How did this pass muster? Not even the Devil could endure it for long.

Sleeper Don 10 Sept. 2005
By customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
For some reason, Daniel Barenboim's recordings of the Mozart-Da Ponte masterpieces have been overlooked. All three have splendid casts - and among them, this may be the least spectacular, but it is nonetheless a wonderful performance.

Joan Rodgers has a gorgeous voice, and sings Zerlina with radiant and womanly warmth - no voce infantile here, thank the gods. It's a pity she hasn't recorded more. She is, fortunately, in Barenboim's two other Mozart-Da Ponte operas, singing her heart out as Susanna and Despina.

Furlanetto has an interesting take on the role of the Don. He usually sings Leprello, but here he sings the part of Don Giovanni with a rather unique interpretation. He plays the Don as somewhat of a fool, with more of a comic slant than I have ever heard. But humor was part of Mozart's original intention, and the Don does have his roots in street theater, so in this case a buffo Don works.

Tomlinson as Leporello is more of the Don's straight man, and there seems to be a bit of role reversal going on here between the clownish Don and his more dignified servant. Tomlinson's voice can be, I think, rather boring - a kind of voice-in-a-box, like Samuel Ramey. Good, strong, accurate, but not much drama or artfulness.

Ewe Heilmann's ravishingly beautiful Mozartian tenor voice adds a welcome dimension of eros to the role of the too-often bland and wimpy Don Ottavio. Waltraud Meier's Donna Elvira, though occassionally a bit on the shrill side, and Leila Cuberli's Donna Anna are both rich, full-bodied, exciting and very womanly. Barenboim seems to have a talent for drawing out highly passionate responses from women. It must be his Scorpio........

There are many great recordings of this magnificent opera. Especially if you go off the beaten path and get away from the Giulini crowd, you'll discover a large number of rare but excellent performances, many of them live. Among these musical feasts are the three Furtwanglers, Busch, Haitink on EMI, Bohm's phenomenal 1955 German-language version on RCA Red Seal (I usually avoid translated performances but this is such an exceptional performance the German can be overlooked), Guild's offering conducted by Breisach with Zinka Milanov's superlative Donna Anna (you won't believe that she can sing like this!), Szell's 1944 performance on Archipel, and on the Naxos Historical series, Bruno Walter with Alexander Kipnis' very Russian and very funny Leporello. The last three all feature Ezio Pinza as the Don.

Add Barenboim's performance to this more exotic list of Don Giovannis and you'll have quite a variety of interpretations from highly gifted artists. Some of Barenboim's opera recordings are outstanding for their dramatic content, the tightness of the performance, and his excellent taste in singers.

Waltraud Meier (as Donna Elvira) is a distinguished singer but she does not strike me as being a natural Mozartian. There ain't much cantabile in her voice. Not once did I luxuriate in her timbre. She's not lacking in characterisation.

I enjoyed Lella Cuberli as Donna Anna. She has a big voice and the control to match. The fury and passion are there. Among the soloists, she's the standout. Matti Salminen is sepulchral as the Commedatore and memorably so. Uwe Heilmann has a lovely voice on a smallish scale. His Don Ottavio is no wimp. He nails Dalla Sua Pace and the treacherous Il Mio Tesoro. Joan Rodgers is no Kathleen Battle - your minx-o-meter will not go off once - but she's competent as Zerlina. Michele Pertusi as Masetto lacks projection and does not sound rustic in the least.

The recording is superb. For instance, the Chorus of Demons is almost reason in itself to acquire this set (in itself, this is one of the sillier things I have ever said, but there you go).

As per normal, Barenboim is never less than diligent in his ministrations. A Prometheus he ain't. No great catharsis is on offer in the Supper Scene or the finale of Act II.

In summary, this is a polished and competent performance of Don Giovanni, albeit with a lousy Leporello and a Don who is unidiomatic in the extreme. Gresham's Law in reverse states that great performances drive their lessers into oblivion. Good luck Danny Boy!
