“A fine tribute to the man who led us so rewardingly along opera's byways. …the late and lamented Patric Schmid. It is largely thanks to him and his colleagues at Opera Rara that we now have a fairly comprehensive familiarity and a greatly enhanced appreciation of early 19th-century Italian opera, a period which until recently was not only neglected but pretty widely despised.”
