The real surprise of this rehearsal is the National Theater Orchestra under the direction of guest conductor Attilio Cremonesi (who accompanies the recitatives himself on the fortepiano). With brisk tempos and a transparent, lively sound, this is a Rossini sound that leaves little to be desired.

The guest conductor Attilio Cremonesi, a proven Rossini specialist, struck sparks from the brilliant score time and again with the well-prepared National Theater Orchestra and confidently accompanied the secco recitatives on the fortepiano.

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 Intoxicating climaxes in the tutti are always kept spiritually under control with the strings that are withdrawn from vibrato, so that the music never “fizzles out” without tension.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.
