Notes & Reviews:
Reissued for the first time at mid price
An exciting cast, suitably vigorous conducting and a lifelike recording make this a spectacular addition to Philips's repertory of Young Verdi. Marriner conducts a direct, forward-moving interpretation that matches the raw energy in the score. His old orchestra offer playing of admirable thrust and delicacy as required. The London Voices sound properly Italianate. All in all, this is an important addition to the Verdi discography.
BBC Music Magazine, March 2013
Verdi's first opera is an uneven work but with some fine inventive passages within a Donizettian framework. This is a fine recording, though lacks theatrical atmosphere.
