A real find!,
This review is from: Rossini: Complete Overtures (Audio CD)
It's always the most popular Rossini overtures that are recorded and it's fabulous to have the complete set. The usual suspects are there of course, but most of 2 of the 3 CDs contain lesser known overtures.There does seem to be one overture missing though; "La donna del lago"(The Lady Of The Lake)!
The recording quality is first class as are the interpretations by Sir Neville Marriner.
I'm now discovering some other early works of Rossini in the form of cantatas which are also available from Amazon UK.

La Donna del Lago has only a 1 minute 30 sec sinfonia introduction to an opening sung chorus of shepherds, sheperdesses and hunters, not a real overture. Perhaps that is way it is missing.
