In 2016 EMI/Warner remastered and repackaged (in rather deluxe form) a handful of classic operas. I managed to get the Klemperer Magic Flute, but stupidly didn't order the Giulini Don Giovanni. (From now on, no more stalling when things get reissued.) Some listeners raved about the quality of the remastering.
Now no one seems to have this. There are couple of odd $100 listings on Amazon that MIGHT be it but I'm not confident. And it's available for around $70 in Japan (at HMV etc.), but this edition is labeled as not playable on standard CD players (it's SACD only). So I think this is a different reissue entirely.
Anyone have any advice, besides not to sit on the sidelines in the future?
