Pros:

  • This performances harkens back to a golden age of Mozart singing when larger voices were routinely given Mozartian assignments. If you find it sounds a little dated by today's "period performance" approach, I encourage you to admire the thought that went into every musical gesture from the exceptional cast as well as the exceptional conductor, Dmitri Mitropoulos.
  • Cesare Siepi lives and breathes the Don from his first entrance until his descent into hell.
  • Elisabeth Grümmer brings Straussian bloom to the role of Donna Anna, without every sacrificing vocal purity.
  • Lisa Della Casa brings poised dignity to the role of Donna Elvira.

Cons:

      • None to mention.
