Performer Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Stefano Pavesi's work was swept away by the Rossini operatic avalanche and he is now almost forgotten, but while his vibrantly entertaining (though not without a touch of melancholy) melodrama giocoso Ser Marcantonio has many Rossinian features the young Gioachino's operatic career was yet to begin when it was first staged. The libretto sets up a typical late eighteenth-century opera buffa plot full of intrigue, buffoonery, disguises and cases of mistaken identity, which may be summarized as "about preventing an old fool from making an ill-advised marriage and stopping his heir from gaining his rightful inheritance".

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
The cast for this recording is made up of young singers. Most impressive is Loriana Castellano, listed as a contralto, as Bettina, the female lead. She has a warm, darkhued sound equally effective in legato singing and in the many coloratura runs Pavesi wrote for her. According to the booklet, she is in her early 30s; she should have a fine career. The title character is sung well by baritone Marco Filippo Romano. He has some wonderful top notes. The rest of the cast is fine; and the orchestra, under Massimo Spadano, plays their mostly fast-paced accompaniments crisply. The booklet contains welcome biographies of the performers as well as an interesting analysis of the work, both the libretto and the music. This is a very good opera. In this age of Rossini revivals and excellent Rossini-style singers, a revival of Ser Marcantonio would be welcome.
