Daniel-François-Esprit Auber (1782-1871), the most amiable French composer of the 19th century, came into his compositional abilities late in life. After Le Maçon (1825) and La Muette de Portici (1828), his life was filled with success. In 1829 he was appointed a member of the Institut, in 1839 Director of Concerts at Court, in 1842 Director of the Conservatoire, in 1852 Musical Director of the Imperial Chapel, and in 1861 Grand Officer of the Légion d’Honneur. He was also capable of some surprising emotional exploration: the love of the fisherman Masaniello for his wronged, disabled sister Fenella in La Muette, the searing doubts of a monarch in love with his trusted friend’s wife in Gustave III, or a man racked by dark unresolved issues from his past in Haydée.
Auber was influenced by Rossini, by the late heroic operas in particular, and the overture to Fra Diavolo (1830) has often enough served as a substitute performed for audiences who have heard too much William Tell. You can sample that to see if Dörner's approach is too laid-back for you; the theme of quiet, catlike tension followed by a heroic flourish is pure Rossini.
