Notes & Reviews:

Using the critical edition by Azio Corghi, this recording of L'Italiana in Algeri was made at a jubilee performance of the XXth Rossini in Wildbad Festival in 2008. For his tenth opera, the already celebrated 21-year-old Rossini wanted ‘a humorous libretto full of spectacle'. This spirited opera, completed in barely a month, scored an immediate hit and its manic atmosphere of ‘organized, total lunacy', as Stendhal put it, has ensured its enduring popularity.

"Pizzolato...[is] a deft, charming and witty Isabella. Lorenzo Regazzo's nifty Mustafa and Bruno De Simone's classic buffo Taddeo could hardly be bettered today, while the rising American tenor Lawrence Brownlee is a stylist to the tips of his vocal cords, with splendiferously pingy high notes. At Naxos prices, an unmissable bargain." -Sunday Times ****

"[Pizzolato's] disarmingly seductive Isabella is airier and more graceful than any of her predecessors on record...these latter-day Italian Rossinians act with spirit, project with intelligence and ornament with skill...The Czech Virtuosi Brunensis provide lean, light-fingered strings, stylish winds and a pair of horns well able to cope with the demands Rossini occasionally makes of them." -Gramophone Magazine
