Hallo, Paul - yes, that is unfortunately the case with the 'Ah! non mi ridestar', which I have listened to on YouTube in the meantime: the score has been changed, as the sole comment remarks, and just when you expect the anguished climax the music wimps out, to use a hallowed vulgarism. Not having either perfect pitch or a score, I cannot exactly identify the notes, unfortunately. I listened to Schipa (in French) and Bergonzi (in Italian) afterwards - who induced the true shiver of recognition.
Thank you for taking part in the MusicWeb International Forum.
