Notes & Reviews:

The young Gioachino Rossini wrote the opera La Gazzetta for the Teatro dei Fiorentini in Naples in 1816 - the premiere performance also took place at this theatre. Rossini's splendid comedy about the newspaper's influence on people's lives, the composer again demonstrates his masterly command of "musical recycling". He uses melodies from earlier works, particularly Il Turco in Italia. This recording features Eva Czapò, Mario Chiappi and Gian Carlo Ceccarini in the main roles - the conductor is Bruno Rigacci.

Read All About It!
Here’s a lively recording—originally produced for radio—of one of Rossini’s early, and neglected, comic operas. (It was poorly reviewed at the time, and some of the music was later recycled for "Cenerentola." Waste not, want not.) Don Pomponio puts a personals ad in the paper to find a suitable husband for his daughter Lisetta, who already has Filippo on tap for the job. I was very taken with soprano Eva Czapo as the young lady with a mind of her own, and bass Mario Chiappi sings more of his role than many buffo performers. Their patter duet is a highlight, and the 1977 recording wears its age well. But the libretto supplied is in Italian only, without track markings (not much help in a comic opera), while the potted biography and production notes are given in three languages. (Who makes these decisions?) Hunt around for a translated libretto, and enjoy the performances.
