Description: This 1794 comic opera, to a French libretto (but sung in Italian here), takes place in the Swiss Alps, uses Swiss folk music, contains some attractive orchestral tone-paining (nightfall, a storm) and was apparently highly thought of by Weber. Decent sound. Gabriella Tucci (soprano), Gianni Raimondi (tenor), Mario Zanasi (baritone), Chorus and Orchestra of Maggio Musicale Fiorentino; Franco Capuana (rec. May 10, 1960).
