Riccardo Muti conducts a fine cast led by Giorgio Zancanaro in the title role of Rossini’s towering and opulent last opera, filmed in 1988, with the Corps de Ballet, Orchestra and Chorus of Teatro alla Scala.
“Muti conducts with real assurance. Pacing the drama magnificently, it is on performances like these that the controversial Maestro has made his well-deserved musical reputation. Tell emerges as a masterpiece from first to last...
Ensembles are a consistent joy – just try the finale of Act 1 – thanks to Muti's clear direction and the superb choral forces. This is a superb DVD...Do try to experience this treat.”
