It was played in a historically informed manner, to which the conductor Attilio Cremonesi in particular played a large part. He meticulously undertook the overture straight away, and brought it to fairytale-like life in a carefully listened-to version, so that the very beginning of the opera was a highlight. Particular attention is paid to the splashing, rhythmically intricate sprinkles of the woodwinds. Intoxicating climaxes in the tutti are always kept spiritually under control with the strings that are withdrawn from vibrato, so that the music never “fizzles out” without tension. The fortepiano accompanying the recitatives generates a magically dark sound.
