 Great Don Giovanni April 28, 2012 By Michel M. (Chateauguay, QC) See All My Reviews "This 1959 recording made in Vienna offers a complete version with the Prague additions (a scene between Zerlina and Leporello which I had never heard is included) in great stereo sound. Leinsdorf leads a brisk and lively performance. The cast is strong if a little disparate - only Nilsson dissapoints a little as Donna Anna - but they all work well together." Report Abuse
