5.0 out of 5 stars Surprising that this wonderful recording is not receiving more recommendations
Giulini, Haitink and Karajan have all made special recordings and probably the celebrated Giulini EMI studio recording is still the primary recommendation for most collectors. Davis was a fine Mozartian and this reading confirms the fact if ever there was any doubt. The cast is a strong one and the performance is vividly projected with fine singing and well defined...

3.0 out of 5 stars OPERA
Firstly I am an utter noob when it comes to Opera,although I have loved the spectacle on both ears and eyes,I have never seen a live one,although I have acted in one before.....So now I find myself collecting Mozarts Operas....This seems to be a well respected piece from the maestro himself,and made famous more so by the film Amadeus....I myself have heard other Mozart...

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprising that this wonderful recording is not receiving more recommendations, 2 Mar 2014
This review is from: Mozart, Vol.41 - Don Giovanni (Audio CD)
Giulini, Haitink and Karajan have all made special recordings and probably the celebrated Giulini EMI studio recording is still the primary recommendation for most collectors. Davis was a fine Mozartian and this reading confirms the fact if ever there was any doubt. The cast is a strong one and the performance is vividly projected with fine singing and well defined characterisation throughout. The final scene remains one of the most dramatic on recordings and the Philips sound is excellent. As much as I like the other recordings I mention there is something magnetic about this very special performance which keeps drawing me back to it. Highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars OPERA, 28 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mozart, Vol.41 - Don Giovanni (Audio CD)
Firstly I am an utter noob when it comes to Opera,although I have loved the spectacle on both ears and eyes,I have never seen a live one,although I have acted in one before.....So now I find myself collecting Mozarts Operas....This seems to be a well respected piece from the maestro himself,and made famous more so by the film Amadeus....I myself have heard other Mozart Operas to be more satisfying,there are good moments in here,a few good pieces of music as well,and singing is first class. But the good moments are to far apart to enjoy...I would only listen to about 30% of this opera in the future again,but the story has yet to be explored in depth....
