The great writer Stendahl wrote of Il viaggio a Reims that “this opera is a feast”. The plot is a contemporary farce tailor-made for a particular occasion – the coronation festivities of Charles X – though Rossini valued the music so highly that he preserved at least part of the score three years later in the opera Comte Ory. This sparkling work is heard complete for the first time and in accordance with the critical edition. Of 8.660363-66, also conducted by Antonino Fogliani, Gramophone wrote: “This 2013 ‘Rossini in Wildbad’ production of Guillaume Tell is probably as fine an achievement as any in the festival’s 25-year history.”
