Take Two... Tutte le Sinfonie di Rossini 17 Jun. 2013
By Matt B - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is the second installment of Rossini Overtures in this Naxos series which claims ultimately to include "tutte le sinfonie di Rossini"... all of Rossini's overtures. This disc includes the composer's most recognized work... the overture to his final opera William Tell as well as some famous, not so famous, and some downright virtually unknown works. In fact the overture to his so-called first opera Dimitrio e Polibio may not have been penned by the adolescent Rossini at all. The opera was commissioned piecemeal... aria by aria... by the Mombelli family for their personal use and the talented young boy did not even realize that he was composing an opera! This occurred circa 1808, but the shrewd Mombellis waited until 1812 to perform the piece... that is after the young composer had made a name for himself. At any rate, the overture does not sound very Rossinian to these ears and as such it may have been penned by papa Mombelli. As further evidence the disc also contains the almost contemporaneous Sinfonia di Bologna which, while not intended as an operatic overture and as such not representative of his later works, it is indeed a harbinger to the classicism and charm that were to become the hallmarks of the Rossini's more mature style. In any event, the disc does give us the opportunity to hear the overtures to the composer's first and last operas. If Rossini did indeed pen the Dimitrio Overture he certainly grew as a composer in the intervening twenty plus years or so... actually the same is true when comparing the Sinfonia di Bologna to the William Tell Overture as well!

At any rate, all the fine attributes that I mentioned in my review of the first installment of this series apply to this CD as well. As such I heartily recommend this disc and look forward to obtaining the two remaining discs that are promised. Incidentally, the overture to Sigismondo which closes the program is not included on any other compilation of which I am aware, and that includes Neville Marriner's complete set on Philips. As I said in my review of volume one... based on the use of more up to date scores and the vitality of the performances compared to the rather coolness of Marriner, this series may be the best way to experience all of these often underrated miniature symphonic gems.

The Famous and the Obscure, and All Well Done. 28 Mar. 2014
By J. R. Trtek - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I discovered volume three in this series first, and so I've been working my way backward through the set. This disc contains some well-known overtures -- William Tell, The Silken Ladder, Il Signor Bruschino -- and then some I'd never heard of, let alone heard. They are all played wonderfully. There are other fine renditions of the more prominent Rossini overtures -- Abbado's comes to mind -- but if you want to be a completist, this is definitely the set to own. There's quality here, as well as quantity. Recommended.
