Notes & Reviews:
In this wonderful recording of La Gazza Ladra, Lü Jia's conducting is sensational and, along with the cast, has been highly praised by the international press for this performance. The brilliant, rousing overture is very famous and was used by Stanley Kubrick to great effect in one of the fight scenes in "A Clockwork Orange".
American Record Guide, September/October 2013
La Gazza Ladra is styled an "opera semiseria", and the wonderful overture and ebullient opening scene lead you to expect a Rossinian comedy.
