Notes and Editorial Reviews

Il turco in Italia is one of Rossini's most sophisticated early comedies, an elegantly crafted two-act drama buffo that looks back to the world of Mozart's Cosi fan tutte and forward, like so much Rossini, to aspects of twentieth-century neoclassicism... [This] set has an exceptionally strong cast of philandering and speculating menfolk. You only have to hear how Simone Alaimo, the Turkish prince Selim, articulates his entrance aria to realize that solid musicianship and the rhetorical demands of the stage action are equally in accord. Alessandro Corbelli is the Poet, the admirable Enrico Fissore the feckless Don Geronio. Importantly for gramophone listening, all three baritones are readily distinguishable in voice and character... [Sumi] Read more Jo is a charming artist and Il turco is very much an ensemble piece, here cogently conducted by Sir Neville Marriner... The playing of the Academy of St Martin in the Fields is predictably stylish and, as usual with Philips, the balance of voices, orchestra and ambient acoustic has a near-ideal Rossinian intimacy and point.
