Notes & Reviews:

The plot of La cambiale di matrimonio (The Bill of Marriage), which Rossini composed when he was just eighteen years old, revolves around the farcical attempts of Tobia Mill, a rich English merchant, to combine business with pleasure by forcing his daughter, the lovely Fanny ('merchandise') to marry Slook, his rich colonial correspondent from America, by means of a bill of exchange.

Allmusic.com
This is Rossini's first-ever performed (and second composed) opera, performed by an international cast of musicians, including American Christopher Franklin conducting the German Württemberg Philharmonic Orchestra. The overture sounds a bit skimpy, which could be due to a smaller orchestra or a recording quality that is not optimal. The musicians are, however, keen in their sense of phrasing, and the little runs in the winds are brought out nicely. They play with excellent timing and rhythm and with clear dynamic contrasts... there are many good ingredients here, a cast of talented musicians and a musically sensitive orchestra. The performance is enjoyable instead of greatly entertaining.

Fanfare
La cambiale di matrimonio is an opera well worth experiencing, not only because it began Rossini's career in the theater but because it is very enjoyable in its own right... This production was recorded live... It employs a young, lively cast that brings much spirit to the recording

Gramophone
The secco recitatives are played with rather more panache in the Pesaro staging but the Wildbad production is lively enough. The rapturous reception at the final curtain is testament to that.

MusicWeb International
This is a lively and involving account of Rossini's first opera. Whilst not perfect, it does bring out the comic drama of the piece and is certainly a fine addition to the expanding list of Rossini operas on Naxos.
