Don Giovanni is one of Mozart's most significant & popular operas: this volume begins with a discussion of the comic elements of this unusual comic opera by Michael F. Robinson. An overall view of the score is given by David Wyn Jones, showing how Mozart maintained dramatic momentum over two long acts and giving an overview of the dramatic pacing and orchestration in some of the most important scenes. Christopher Raeburn concludes the commentary with an engaging portrait of Da Ponte, Mozart's 'libertine librettist' and his relationship with the composer. It contains: over twenty photographs covering performances of Don Giovanni to the present day, a detailed thematic analysis, the libretto in Italian with a facing literal translation, and an up-to-date discography and bibliography. It includes a selection of unique letters between Mozart and his father written during the opera s composition.
