About this Recording

ROSSINI, G.: Gazzetta (La) (Cristarella Orestano, Gauthier, Naples San Pietro a Majella Conservatory Chorus, Czech Chamber Soloists, Franklin)

Composed between The Barber of Seville (8.660027–29) and Cinderella (8.660191–92), Rossini’s only Neapolitan comic opera La gazzetta (The Newspaper) was based on a highly popular romantic comedy by Carlo Goldoni, yet has languished until the publication of the new critical edition on which this recording is based. Now revealed as a delicious entertainment satirising the rôle of the media, it involves two young women, their lovers and fathers, who are beset by the arrival of disguised Quakers and a Turkish masquerade all the result of an advertisement!
