GIOACHINO ROSSINI (1792-1868): L'occasione fa el ladro.
Catalogue Number: 09O031
Description: The 20-year-old composer whipped this burletta per music up in eleven days, a swift and deftly plotted moral drama with brilliant arias and ensembles joined together a bit clumsily by recitatives written by a colleague due to the time pressure on Rossini. Oddly, this is the only modern recording of it available on CD. 2 CDs. Italian libretto available on-line. Elizaveta Martyrosyan (soprano), Fanie Antonelou (mezzo), Gardar Thór Cortes (tenor), Gianpiero Ruggeri, Mauro Utzeri (baritones), Württemberg Philharmonic Orchestra; Antonino Fogliani.
