He fancied himself transported into the scenery of his native land, where that beautiful Italian landscape begins at what Napoleon so cleverly described as the glacis of the Alps.

This finale may be criticised for its resemblance to that of Don Giovanni ; but there is this immense difference: That is really fine music! The heavenly airs belie their origin, and when the composer abandons the infernal motives he returns to them as soon as possible, fatigued with the effort of keeping aloof from them. He is in love and ambitious. Far from it, Giardini espies Marianna, looking the worse for wear, her beauty gone except tambara an intense look in her eyes.
