This welcome reissue of Adam Fischer’s sparkling 1985 recording of Paisiello’s unjustly eclipsed Barbiere offers a strong case for its continued toe-hold in the repertory. The Hungarian cast even sings with enough style and relish to overlook Hungaraton’s neglect in providing an Englished libretto. Antony Bye
