Notes & Reviews:

If the career of the Bohemian composer Florian Leopold Gassmann (1729–1774) had not been cut cruelly short by his death resulting from a fall from a carriage, his name might be a good deal better known today for he was an accomplished composer of attractive, well-wrought operas that occupy an important place in the history of Venetian and Viennese 18th-century opera. This recording features a selection of Gassmann's overtures, including those for three of his most popular operas, 'Il viaggiatore ridicolo' (The Ridiculous Traveller), 'L'amore artigiano' (Love in the Workplace) and 'La contessina' (The Young Countess). Following the fast-slow-fast pattern typical of the mid-eighteenth century opera, these works are noteworthy for their bright cheerful themes, lovely lyrical writing and sensitive orchestration.

"I think it is fair to say that the Bohemian composer Florian Leopld Gassmann (1729-74) is unknown...Suddenly Naxos gives us a collection of 10 of his many opera overtures...A mark of the esteem the royal family had for him is shown by the fact that the Empress Maria Theresia became godmother to his daughter, who was born shortly after he died. The overtures are all typical of the mid 18th Century: fast-slow-fast. They are well crafted and enjoyable to listen to...The Eclipse Chamber Orchestra...is clearly a talented ensemble...The notes are satisfactory, and the recording is first class. This is an inexpensive disc and a good way to become acquainted with a new composer." - American Record Guide
