Format: Audio CD
For as long as I can remember, this recording made at the then newly-built opera house on John Christie's country estate at Glyndebourne, Sussex, England, has been highly rated and universally admired. Critics and reviewers in recent times have generally rated it as indispensable, even though it was recorded more than seventy years ago. I believe it was the first complete recording of the opera. It was made over a period of one week while the opera festival was in progress. Now comes this excellent Ward Marston restoration on the super budget Naxos label to a newer listening public in the C21st.
Keith Anderson, in the accompanying notes, provides an explanation for the greatness of the Mozart opera productions that opened the Glyndbourne opera house in the 1930s. They were strong ensemble productions. The conductor was Fritz Busch. The producer was Carl Ebert. Rudolf Bing became involved also in 1936.
As has frequently happened in subsequent productions, the cast of singers is drawn from many countries - almost as many as Leporello mentions in his catalogue aria. The don is an Australian, Leporello an Italian, Anna an American, Elvira an Austrian, Zerlina is English, Ottavio is Hungarian, and Masetto is Scottish. Outstanding amongst them is Salvatore Baccaloni as Leporello. He encompasses the vocal part with ease, he colours his voice with skill, and he delivers the recitatives at a spanking pace. John Brownlee is noticeably slower in the latter requirement. His singing always has the stamp of the aristocrat, suggesting a don destined for life-long partnership with a Spanish infanta rather than a don responsible for a catalogue of seductions.

Format: Audio CD
I won't even lower myself to find exactly what the legal copyright fluff was with EMI that caused this extraordinary 70-year-old recording (that maybe 3000 people worldwide remotely care about) to be yanked from circulation. I picked mine up at a music retailer's--coincidentally at the moment he was gathering up various Naxos discs involved in this altercation, in preparation to returning them. Now the question is when will this be re-released and will we ever again hear the incredible remastering done by Ward Marston; it's all in the hands of lawyers and money people now. It's the best DG I've ever heard and, in a peculiar yet wonderful sense, the best sounding. The clarity of this recording of this singular cast is amazing! Some background hiss but who the heck cares.

Anyway, if this ever turns up again, or if you spot it in a cutout bin at some backwater shop grab it.

I agree with the previous reviewers.
This is a justly famous recording of what must have been a fabulous ensemble on the Glyndebourne stage. For my money, the youthful Salvatore Baccaloni is the finest Leporello on disc. And Louise Helletsgruber, that best of Cherubinos, is very good as Donna Elvira. John Brownlee is the smoothest and most seductive among the handfull of truly great Don Giovannis.

I would like merely to emphasize the astonishing dramatic quality of this recording. I have heard other performerrs outshine those here from a purely musical point of view.. But never a recording (of any work) that gave a better sensation of the operatic performance.
