Great in parts - but flawed,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Mozart, Wolfgang Amadeus - Don Giovanni / Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Opernhaus Zürich [2 DVDs] (DVD)
Harnoncourt's orchestration is excellent - playful, moving, light, lovely - one misses it when one watches a D.G. done by, say, Levine. Gilfry and Polgar are great together, and Polgar has a cooly charming style - and lovely voice - which I find very appealing. I also find Nikiteanu a great actor, and the love duet between her and Gilfry is extremely pleasant to listen to. I am among the few, however, who object to Bertoli. Not her voice: but she is a very bad actor. Her ludicrous (and self-satisfied) overacting of Donna Elvira makes one cringe. Turn off the screen and just listen - don't look. - Yes, I know, she is all the rage, and one isn't supposed to say such things: but she in fact shames herself. - Flimm's stage directing is always a little odd, but he manages to keep himself more or less under control here (although other productions do much, much better). In short, I very, very much enjoy this D.G. (of the four I own).
