Amazon review

This is probably the best recording you will find of 'Don Giovanni'. It is a crying shame that there aren't more recordings out there; indeed I still pine for the loss of a DVD or at the very least a CD version of a Samuel Ramey/Feruccio Furlanetto performance - every DVD seems to be over $50. Still, Ramey is here, singing the part of Leporello. The tempo (to disregard another reviewer) is SUPERB. It is allegro ma non troppo and the arias are sung exquisitely. The frenzied opening ("Non sperar, se non m'uccidi") sets the pace for the whole thing and I thought that Lopardo's Don Ottavio was brilliant in executing the very difficult "Dalla sua pace". Finally, all "Don Giovanni" performances MUST have a sublime Commendatore for the ending - this recording is as good as any.

Overall,

8/10 - check out the Ramey/Furlanetto performance on YouTube and you'll see why this isn't the best out there, but nevertheless it is worth the relatively cheap price. Please click here to ask a question
