Seldom Heard, but Worth Hearing
By JAY NORDLINGER [NY Sun, 19 January 2007]
On Wednesday night at Carnegie Hall, New York had the opportunity to hear "the other ‘Otello'" — the one that Rossini wrote in 1816. This was 70 years before Verdi tackled that same play. Presenting the Rossini was Opera Orchestra of New York, under its founderconductor, Eve Queler. We had a satisfying evening, thanks to both Rossini and OONY.
