The release of Don Giovanni will complete the exceptional 4-year Mozart project Sony Classical has undertaken to studio-record the 3 Da Ponte Operas with Teodor Currentzis and his orchestra and choir MusicAeterna ("The next revolutionary sensation of classical music" - The Independent). Now finally comes Currentzis’ take on the cornerstone of the Da Ponte trilogy – which everybody has been waiting for. Mozart’s mighty and dark magnum opus – Don Giovanni. It promises to follow in the same vein as the previous two outstandingly received recordings Figaro and Così. In addition, BRMI are creating an new 50-min documentary titled “The Archetype of Myself – The Conductor Teodor Currentzis” which followed the conductor over several months following his artistic and private endeavours with MusicAeterna last year. This recording of ‘Don Giovanni’ forms the focal point of this documentary.
