Performer Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Premiere recording! Autographed score conserved at the Naples Library used as the source for this recording. Giovanni Paisiello, a prolific Classical-era composer (nearly 100 operas alone!) experienced great success in his lifetime in both Italy and Imperial Russia. The Orchestra Barocca 'la Confraternita de' musici' is directed from the harpsichord by Cosimo Prontera. Sung in Italian. Liner notes in Italian and English.

American Record Guide, January/February 2015
What is truly fine is the performance, recorded September 21, 2011 in the Chiostro dell'ex Convento di San Francesco in Taranto, the intermezzo's first performance in modern times (premiere in Rome at the Teatro Valle in February 1766). Even in the most prosaic of passages there is a sense of true gaiety and enjoyment. The orchestra has a lot of character; it's a period-instrument ensemble.
