The gold standard,

This review is from: Mozart: Don Giovanni (Audio CD)
The most wonderful of Klemperer's Mozart recordings, the dark heart of the opera opened up by his virulent reading of the score and the gorgeous cast. Has anyone sung Zerlina more beautifully than Mirella Freni? Ghiaurov is stunning as the Don, cloaked in his astonishingly jet-coloured baritone.
The extra disc with rehearsals is revealing, amusing and at times, inspiring.
