Best Don Giovanni?

Don Giovanni has been exceptionally well-represented on disc, and given the strengths of each performance, it is impossible to pick a “best” Don Giovanni. However, this legendary recording, made in 1955, has become my favorite. Why? The precision and perfect harmony of the singers. The timing is impeccable and they sing like the creation of a new entity made of two, sometimes 3 or 4, great singers combined. Hard to explain, but when you listen, you’ll understand. Rather than “best,” I would call this the first among firsts.

  1. I see it exactly the same way as far as Krips’ core competence is concerned. A great conductor and especially opera conductor. But the time was also really different and, in my opinion, at least as far as the results are concerned, a better one. To be able to rehearse for weeks with stars like those listed here in an ensemble is a true luxury – and hardly imaginable today. Too bad that this recording has not yet been subjected to HD remastering. With Kleiber’s Le nozze di Figaro this was done very well.

  2. @ Rach : little mistake, the tag is krisp instead of krips. It’s a very little detail but all records of this wonderfull krips must not be missed in your excellent website !
