4.0 out of 5 stars Some fresh choices among old favourites. 27 Jun 2010
A good technical recording. On 2CDs there is scope to widen the area of choice. It is good that there are selections from within a number of his operas, though sadly nothing from my favourite "Le Comte Ory". I feel it is unnecessary to have so many of his operatic overtures - lovely though they be, they appear on many other CDs and will already be in the collections of buyers of this set. The items from his "sins of old age" are a welcome choice, especially "The Cats Duet". And why nothing from his orchestral works?

Anyone who enjoys Rossini's music will enjoy this set. There is enough in that is different from other selections to make it worth buying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb 6 Mar 2008
By Olivier Bailly - Published on Amazon.com
I know what most people think of "Best Of", but you absolutely cannot go wrong with this recording.
First, the overture of the Barber of Seville is probably one of the most authoritative - I own four different versions of that opera and they all pale by comparison. It's similar of Largo al factotum, Figaro's aria - Gobbi is simply stellar.
It also contains very interesting pieces like the Cat's Duet, parts of William Tell which is really hard to find given the cast and setup it requires, and overall a wonderful selection.
The recording quality is very good, although it sets the listener a little far from the scene as opposed to being in the front row, but does not make it less enjoyable.
Fits any collection, large and small. A true must have for Rossini enthusiasts.

I ordered this CD strictly for the "Cat Duet" which is delightful. The rest of it is lively Rossini music.

This album contains the overtures and the highlights of his main operas. "Sins of old age" is the favorite part, especially "the Cat's Duet".
