Into the cave with Antonio Salieri

'La Grotta di Trufonio' is as rewarding as an opera by Mozart
By by Tim Pfaff [Bay Area Reporter, 11 May 2006]

One of the most important additions to the CD catalogue in this Mozart Year may turn out to be an opera by Salieri. If you can put aside for a minute your memories of (and fondness, if any, for) the worst music movie ever made, the idea is not so perverse. Give Christophe Rousset's brilliant new recording of Antonio Salieri's La Grotta di Trufonio (Ambrosie) a spin, and then tell me you haven't had an opera experience as rewarding as most of the ones you've had watching and listening to Mozart operas.
