The quality of recording is disappointing - 2 out of 7 tracks keep stumbling so the listening experience is spoiled

Lean, streamlined Rossini--truly chamber-like 19 Oct 2006
By Santa Fe Listener - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Earlier reviewers don't seem to have picked up on the special flavor of this CD. Abbado presents Rossini's evergreen overtures with punch, extra speed, lean textures, and mercurial phrasing. This approach is clearly inspired by having a chamber orchestra at his disposal. I'm not sure this ensemble of young musicians is exactly virtuosic, as David Hurwitz claims. Enthusiastic might be a better term. If you want truly virtuosic Rossini, the classic Reiner album from Chicago is unbeatable (RCA), for humor and zest turn to Beecham (part of an EMI two-fer), for boisterousness Bernstein (Sony) or the early Abbado himself from London (RCA). Having said that, this sparklig colleciton is quite nice in its own right.

One of a Top Two 6 Dec 2012
By J. R. Trtek - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I largely agree with one of the preceding reviewers that these renditions are lithe and lean. I also agree that Reiner's vintage versions are more skillfully played, to the point where that album would probably be my preference between the two choices, if I were forced to opt for one or the other. Fortunately, I don't have to make that decision and have both the Abbado and Reiner on my shelf. This disc in particular is brimming with energy, and Rossini's music truly sparkles from the enthusiasm of the players. In this instance, less (orchestra) can indeed be more. Recommended.

Perhaps some of the criticism of Maestro Abbado 29 Mar 2004
By Dennis J. Marconi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
should be edited, as we now know that he had been suffering from stomach cancer which helps to explain some of the youthful flair that he allegedly lost in recent years.
Accept him for what he has accomplished during his magnificent career. Rossini was one of his specialties.
Enjoy the cd and one of the best conductors of our generation
