Don Giovanni


Adventures on the Piano

What would it have been like had Don Giovanni been able to play the piano? The works on Babette Dorn’s new Genuin CD certainly sound as if he had been a brilliant seducer on the keyboard too. On this CD a string of pearls from many different parts of the opera is awaiting the listener – precious gems which thrill, enchant, astound with the sheer creativity shown by composers like Hummel, Beethoven, Cramer, Bizet and Rheinberger. It starts with the aimless grumbling of Leporello all the way to a boisterous village feast, from a stroke of genius to a full-scale set of variations. And Babette Dorn presents all this with a wink, passion and – just in the spirit of E.T.A. Hoffmann, the great Mozart admirer – in a truely “supernatural“ way.

"Adventure, excitement and drama in their most varied facets (…), the result is cheeky, wild and impudent – and with a magnificent feeling for the tragedy inherent in the material." Piano News 6/06
