@sillyparrot Hello! Sorry for the late reply! I actually own a copy of Don Giovanni on CD and it came from that! I don't have the CD on me right now but I believe it was the Royal Danish Opera. Sorry for not being useful!

Extraordinary! On the page it looked nothing. The beginning simple, almost comic. Just a pulse - bassoons and basset horns - like a rusty squeezebox. Then suddenly - high above it - an oboe, a single note, hanging there unwavering, till a clarinet took over and sweetened it into a phrase of such delight! This was no composition by a performing monkey! This was a music I'd never heard. Filled with such longing, such unfulfillable longing, it had me trembling. It seemed to me that I was hearing a voice of God.

So true. That was one spectacular line. Even after all these years and forgetting the rest of the movie, I remember that part clearly.
