Rossini’s ceaseless wit and invention are best exemplified in his series of operas. His colourful orchestration and command of both comic and tragic elements can be savoured in this second of four volumes of the complete symphonic overtures. Guillaume Tell, with its overture in four movements, includes a scene for five solo cellos. La scala di seta (The Silken Ladder), one of his most popular pieces, opens with an overture of charm and élan. Volume 1 (8.570933) was described by MusicWeb International as “an admirable start to what looks like being a very desirable series”.

 "... Strongly recommended."

Jerry Dubins - Fanfare - November/December 2013


"... performance and sound are easily on a par with volume 1, and on balance I can recommend adding this one to your Rossini shelf as well. I can’t ait to see what Volume 3 might bring!"

Steven J Haller - American Record Guide - September/October 2013


"I was very impressed by the first volume of this intended set of four discs. This made me a little apprehensive as to whether the standard would be kept up. There was however no need for this, as here is another excellent disc to join not only the previous Rossini disc but two discs of Schubert’s complete Overtures from the same performers... If you want more than the six or eight of the composer’s best known Overtures this series would provide a very satisfactory way of obtaining them."
