Program notes

In 1987, Herbert von Karajan conducted a historic production of Don Giovanni at the Salzburg Festival featuring an artistic team considered to this day to be one of best to have ever brought the opera to life: Samuel Ramey, Benny Goodman, Gösta Winbergh, Paata Burchuladze, Julia Varady, Ferruccio Furlanetto, Alexander Malta, and Kathleen Battle. The virtuosic soloists are supported by one of the greatest artistic partnerships of the 20th century: maestro Karajan and the Wiener Philharmoniker!
