Notes & Reviews:

Overtures were composed in order to prepare the listener for the act to come. Originally, the audience took their seats while the overture was playing. However, the history of music knows truly bright examples of opera overtures that have become finished pieces of their own, and ranked among the favorites of the orchestras worldwide thanks to their splendid music and wonderful arrangement. This wonderful disc contains Russian opera overtures brilliantly orchestrated by Evgeny Svetlanov.
