RILM abstract:"Considers the composer-conductor's recordings of his tone poem Don Juan, and charts the genesis of the four commercially released recordings: 1917, 1922, 1929, and 1944. Techniques employed in the recordings are analyzed, and the practices and principles applied by Strauss are discussed in detail. George Szell's involvement in the 1917 recording is considered. Strauss's tempos in the 1922, 1929, and 1944 recordings are compared."
