Notes & Reviews:

"...the most intelligent and certainly the most involving traversal of the opera on record for many years... being able to follow every nuance of the drama instantly is enriching..." - Opera Now Magazine. About David Parry's 2001 recording of Don Giovanni, Gramophone Magazine wrote: "...We have come to know that an operatic performance recorded under David Parry is likely to be strong in its convictions, and this Don Giovanni is no exception...

Penguin Guide
Parry's timing of the comedy here is impeccable, helped by light, clean textures and imaginative continuo-playing in recitatives, using fortepiano. Most of the principals have had long experience of singing their roles on stage
