"Asioli’s music is now forgotten, although the brilliance of his talent was widely acknowledged by his contemporaries. His idiom, pleasant and at times sentimental, is at its best in his vocal chamber music, which in style recalls Haydn and Mozart, without showing many traces of the stylistic crisis undergone by music at the beginning of the 19th century. His sinfonie have been compared to those by the young Beethoven, and his theatrical music was written in the style of Paisiello and Cimarosa. His didactic work survived longer, and it is to him that the Milan Conservatory owes the foundation of its library." Sergio Lattes and Roberta Montemorra Marvin in Grove Music Online.
