Notes & Reviews:

"There is a boldness and confidence to Mercadante's music that is reminiscent of early Verdi. Rhythmic vitality is much in evidence, coupled with melodic elan. Quite impressive is the way Mercadante's unexpected harmonies support and carry the melodic line. And it's often colorfully orchestrated and invigorating. A succession of arias, duets, and trios are all of melodic majesty and expressive of the emotions of the text." - Parsons, ARG
