Rossini: Il Turco in Italia / Conti, De Carolis

Album Summary

>Rossini, Gioachino : Il turco in Italia (The Turk in Italy), opera
Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Rossini's brilliant satirical opera is as notable for its considerable use of ensemble as for its many memorable tunes. The plot revolves around the tangled romance of the Turkish nobleman, Selim and of his former mistress, Zaida. Among the many highlights is the masterful duet of Geronio and Selim, in which the Turk tries to persuade the aging husband to sell him his wife, the capricious Fiorilla.
