Solti conducted Don Giovanni in nine performances during the 1954 Glyndebourne season : on July 7, 9, 11, 14, 17, 21, 23, 25, 27. These performances of Don Giovanni were Georg Solti’s only Glyndebourne appearances. This complete performance was broadcast live from the opera house on 17 July 1954. The source recording is part of the ‘Itter Broadcast Collection’ held by Lyrita Recorded Edition Trust. This is the first release on Prima Voce for more than five years and we hope that it will once again stimulate interest in this critically acclaimed series. A new printed catalogue for Prima Voce is also available and our next release will be Berlioz, ‘The Damnation of Faust’ in a live performance from the Royal Festival Hall, with Joan Hammond conducted by Sir Malcolm Sargent in 1953.
