Format: Audio CD
Klemperer's 1966 recording of Don Giovanni with Nicolai Ghiaurov was first issued on CD in 1991.
The sound was not remastered for this 2012 re-release, but it is very good indeed.

The performance is heavy and dramatic.
Not the currently accepted Mozart style.
I'd rather hear this than an "elegant" performance.

One difference between this and the 1991 CDs is that you lose the printed libretto and translation.
Now you are directed to EMI's website, where they are available in perpetuity.
Supposedly.

The other difference is that this new version includes 59 minutes of rehearsal excerpts, mostly devoted to Mirella Freni as Zerlina.

I had a crush on Mirella Freni, and it sounds like Otto Klemperer did too.
It actually sounds like the 81 year-old conductor is flirting with the 31 year-old singer.
Unexpected fun side of Klemperer.

This is not what I expected a Klemperer rehearsal to sound like.

The opera, but not the rehearsal CD, is included in the 11 CD EMI box: Mozart: Operas

Klemperer's Magic Flute was justifiably part of EMI's "Great Recordings of the Century."
The Cosi fan tutte and Marriage of Figaro are very controversial.
Recorded late in Klemperer's life, they are also heavy and dramatic (detractors would say slow and ponderous).
I find them fascinating, but they don't sound like comic operas.

I recommend Klemperer's Mozart Opera box, but I also recommend that you supplement it with this (very inexpensive) 2012 reissue of Don Giovanni.
Just for the sake of the rehearsal CD.
