Notes and Editorial Reviews
New York Times 2016 Gift Idea Selection
The release of Mozart: Don Giovanni will complete the exceptional 4-year Mozart project Sony Classical has undertaken to studio-record the 3 Da Ponte Operas with Teodor Currentzis and his orchestra and choir MusicAeterna. Now finally comes Currentzis’ take on the cornerstone of the Da Ponte trilogy that everybody has been waiting for. Mozart’s mighty and dark magnum opus – Don Giovanni. It promises to follow in the same vein as the previous two outstandingly received recordings Figaro and Cosi Fan Tutte.
The third Mozart opera that the charismatic conductor Teodor Currentzis has made with his ensemble, MusicAeterna, this “Don Giovanni” is, like the others, an idiosyncratic, sometimes startling, always riveting listening experience.
