"or Paesieixo". Does this variant appear in a contemporary document? What does Grove's say? --Wetman 23:43, 8 May 2006 (UTC)

It's a scanning error from the 1911 EB import and should be Paesiello (only -ai- v. -ae- different). Lots of respectable websites give the -ae- variant. I shall now change it.

"Two far greater composers"?[edit]

This is pure opinion, and seems to violate Wikipedia:Neutral Point of View. It is one certainly not held by me, and I`m sure I am not alone in that regard. I think that this should be removed. I looked up this article because I was listening to Paisiello`s "Il barbiere di Siviglia" this morning, and was disappointed to find such slant in the article. I am sure I am not the only one in the world who considers him to have been a great composer. Smyslov 2 June 2006

Removed it again. I for one do not consider Cherubini or Méhul to have been greater composers than Paisiello, and this statement is violation of Neutral Point of View. Smyslov 17:42, 14 September 2006 (UTC)

Consigned to oblivion?[edit]

"Il Barbiere di Siviglia", it is now acknowledged as Rossini's greatest work, while Paisiello's opera is consigned to oblivion'

What? Paisiello's "Barbiere" consigned to oblivion?

"...is known only to connoisseurs of opera"? "...is only infrequently produced"/ What? --10:43, 10 September 2006 (UTC)


I accept your second proposal.

List of Works should have its own article[edit]

The newly added list of works is great. Could we split it off into its own article? DavidRF (talk) 14:47, 7 May 2008 (UTC)
