Catalogue Number: 11R028
Description: Another composer who got buried by the Rossini juggernaut (although Opera Grove notes that he anticipated Rossini in his employment of dramatic orchestral effects), this 90-minute one-act farsa debuted in 1810 in Venice - during the same season as the very young Rossini’s Cambiale di Matrimonio. Live recording from the Rossini in Wildbad Festival 2010. 2 CDs. Italian libretto available on-line. Dušica Bijelić (soprano), Silvia Beltrami (mezzo), Gustavo Quaresma Ramos (tenor), Gabriele Nani (baritone), Virtuosi Brunensis; Giovanni Battista Rigon.
