Notes & Reviews:

Rossini's ceaseless wit and invention are best exemplified in his series of operas. His colorful orchestration and command of both comic and tragic elements can be savored in this second of four volumes of the complete symphonic overtures. Guillaume Tell, with its overture in four movements, includes a scene for five solo cellos. La scala di seta (The Silken Ladder), one of his most popular pieces, opens with an overture of charm and élan. Volume 1 (8.570933) was described by MusicWeb Internationalas "an admirable start to what looks like being a very desirable series".

BBC Music Magazine, August 2013
The playing is clean and efficient, well balanced and nicely paced, though the performances rarely rise to the truly inspired.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
Performance and sound are easily on a par with Volume 1, and on balance I can recommend adding this one to your Rossini shelf as well. I can't wait to see what Volume 3 might bring!
