Penguin Guide, January 2009

As this lively alternative Naxos account demonstrates, vigorously conducted by the former baritone Claudio Desderi, Rossini’s style was already fully developed in such characteristic numbers as the patter-duet between the hero, Florville, and the guardian of his beloved, Gaudenzio. The involved plot is typical of the genre, with the Naxos booklet providing a detailed synopsis as well as a full libretto in Italian. The singing is stylish, led by Alessandro Codeluppi as Florville, and with Elena Rossi as the heroine, Sofia, bright and agile if rather unvaried in tone. An outstanding bargain.

Gramophone, September 2004
