Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
It's glad to have a opera who suffered sad distorsions in its original version, caring the details the composer would have thought when he created a workpiece.

When you listen the Barbiere of Molajoli and then, you listen the Abbado recording you can see how the musicologic studies have improved. But specially, with the Rossini's french opera, i appreciate when the producer decides to do it in its original version, because can show the changes that Rossini create in its original version.

The cases of this revision are Maometto II, Mosè in Egitto and Il Viaggio a Reims, which became in La Siège de Corinthe, Moïse et Pharaön, and Le Comte Ory (the only exception was Guillaume Tell, which did not derive from any previous opera). For my opinion, the happiest revision of them was precisely the "Mamometto-to-Siege" one, not only because Maometto has been a excellent source, but the revision did not lose the initial quality of the opera.

In Siège the opera lose the architectonic greatness of Maometto, which have huge numbers, like the "Terzettone". Rossini gives more orchestral colour to the score, more ballet music, and a more sensitive theme (The Greece's independency), producing a more dramatic work piece, closer to the french taste, without the exageration of a Fernando Cortez, Les Huguenots, etc (I'm not going to say Guillaume Tell). And like the french version of Gluck's Orpheus and Euridice, the mezzo part of the lover became in a more credible tenor part, being this opera one of the difficulty scores in history that requires two "primos", like Otello, Armida, Elisabetta, Viaggio a Reims, etc.
