This unknown work by an unknown composer deserves your atten

"I don't know where I came by this work but I am delighted that I did. Soliva had the misfortune of being a contemporary of Rossini, Donizetti and Bellini. In my opinion this opera is the equal of any of their works. Both the individual voices and the choral voices are absolutely superb by any standard. Since I am partial to female voices I will single out for particular praise Elisabetta Scano. But all of the others are equally good. Anyone who loves opera of the early 19th century will love this work."
WORTHY OF A BEL CANTO COLLECTION

"I READ A REVIEW OF THIS OPERA CALLING THE LIBRETTO TO TASK FOR NOT BEING HISTORICAL OR COHERENT. FOLKS, I DO NOT ASK ANY OPERA TO BE EITHER. i DO NOT EVEN ASK IT TO BE PLAUSIBLE. I ASK IT TO HAVE BEAUTIFUL MUSIC AND BE WELL SUNG. THIS RECORDING OF A FORGOTTEN OPERA BY A FORGOTTEN COMPOSER FULFILLS BOTH MY EXPECTATIONS. THE MUSIC IS EXQUISITE; THE SINGING IS SUPERB--WHICH GOES TO SHOW YOU NEED NOT BE AFRAID OF THE UNKNOWN. GET IT AND ENJOY!"
