Glorious Singing

  • Sep 30, 2006
Paisiello is never as ample in musical conception nor as infinite in musical variety as the two composers with whom he is always compared - Mozart and Rossini - but what he does (expressive simplicity), he does very well. This production represents his musical virtues convincingly, as other reviewers have already declared. My only problem is with Cecilia Bartoli. She sings so well that I hate to grumble about her acting. However, somebody needs to point out that she consistently over-acts, hams and grimaces, flaunts and flounders. She's such a quaint dumpling of a "contadina" that only a good deal of restraint could make her stage-presence appropriate for the love-maddened, spiritualized Nina. Now I've had my say. Buy the disk anyway; it's a good piece of music, very well sung.
