[...] Mendelssohn [...], he's a completely underrated composer.

 

Actually you might have missed an 's' before the 'he', especially given the context we're in here... In any case, album of the evening:

 

Mozart: Don Giovanni

Bernard Haitink, London Philharmonic Orchestra, et al.

Yes I know. Poor Fanny. She would have needed a #meetoo. 

 

How’s Haitink here? I have a sizable number of Don Giovannis but not this one.

I have nothing else to compare it to. But looks like it has good reviews, e.g.:

Given this opera's grave subject matter, it's somewhat odd that it's formally classified as opera buffa. But many of the scenes are total chaos like Mozart's other opera buffa, e.g. Marriage of Figaro. The sense of out of control can be quite comedic. And the Don Giovanni character, is this guy for real? The guy's so out of it it's laughable. So opera buffa it is. And the performance flows well. All in all very enjoyable.

Which reminds me: I have the same album and should get to it soon. But I have Handel's Rinaldo and Vivaldi's Il Farnace in the play queue now. After those I guess.

Getting close to building a small jig I can drop booklet and camera into as needed.  200x00 is a thumbnail not cover art.

If you guessed that was the fourth release by the Washington Balalaika Society, located in our nation's capital, good for you.  About to follow this up with a test listen to first act from the digital remastering of this classic recording.
