This is a Musical Heritage Society reissue of a vintage recording, quite good. I've been listening to these in the car, so the impressions I get are not from the best fidelity and have added road noise. Still, it's quite good. For a while I thought it was the car system making donna Ana sound great but muffled but when I picked up the box to look at it, saw that it was Joan Sutherland. Ah. Beautiful voice but ...
Schwarzkopf makes an excellent donna Elvira with her slight shrillness. I thought Sciutti's Zerlina was a bit weak, but all in all good job all around. Totally worth the membership thingie with MHS. I don't regret doing that at all. ( )

This is a very poor quality recording of a live performance in 1963. The strings sound squonky, but the singers are singing their respective asses off. Leontyne Price is especially good, as you can tell by the mushy and prolonged ovations, especially after her last aria. It got two stars because the singing is pretty darn good and I hadn't listened to any of my other "Don Giovanni" recordings so I couldn't make the comparison with the better quality. There are some of us who aren't audiophiles that can tolerate a certain amount of background noise on poor recordings on vinyl or the squeaking of cassettes being played, but there's no excuse for this. It seems absolutely no effort was made to improve the sound quality while digitizing. Might have been something originally pirated off the radio.
Contains a libretto in English and Italian - with no notes or any other information. I hope I didn't pay a lot for it. Probably just wanted the Leontyne Price singing. ( )
