I agree with Edmund Meinerts here. There are minutes of pure Zanelli's thematic work that fits the original Overture like they are one whole. Giving a composer a famous melody with the task of developing its extension is more challenging than writing from scratch, because he'd have to keep up with the level of talent in someone else's universe (style). Zanelli walks in William Tell shoes without making a wrong step and I only wish Rossini could hear it.

PS. Can you people list more examples of classics remade by modern film composers? Like this, and Hannibal by Zimmer...
