"If the stage direction was of a high quality, the same can also be said of the music, under the direction of Sesto Quatrini. With barely a weakness to be heard, the orchestra, chorus and soloists produced a splendid rendition of Vaccai’s opera, and will have done much to rehabilitate its reputatoion. [...] The conductor, Sesto Quatrini, has a very distinctive demeanor on the podium; at times, his whole body appears to be infused with the music. His animated movements are so intense, and his communication so clear, that it is easy to understand exactly what it is he wants from the orchestra and singers. The players of the Orchestra Accademia Teatro alla Scala responded marvelously to his direction and produced an energetic and expressive performance, which captured the dramatic thrust of the work".
