Notes & Reviews:

'La Pietra del Paragone' is unique in the sense that no other opera of Rossini's has been so highly praised in the literature on the subject and yet so seldom performed. It does, however, thoroughly deserve its reputation and marks a unique phase of Rossini's development as a master of opera buffa. His genius for melody and sparkling, witty orchestration are already apparent in this relatively early work. Conductor Alessandro de Marchi directs a lively and stylish performance.
