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.

I'm not great on classical music, but I like some of Rossini, and the 'Cats' Duet' (the reason for buying it) is great fun ' Mee ee ee OW!'

Excellent collection of popular Rossini items performed by top singers and conductors, including Caballe, Callas, Gedda, Gobbi, Gruberova, Giulini and Ramey. Highly enjoyable.
