Rossini: Complete Overtures 4

Dazzling recordings of favourite and less well-known overtures. Classic FM Drive Featured Album, 20 January 2014.

The Prague Sinfonia Orchestra are on a mission to record all of Rossini ’s overtures and in this, the fourth album in the cycle, their pattern continues of placing lesser-known overtures - including the toe-tapping Armida -  alongside perennial favourites such as The Barber of Seville.

The orchestra under Christian Benda fizzes along, drawing out from these timeless works all of Rossini's verve, style and intensity.
