Notes & Reviews:

Volume 3 of the complete Rossini symphonic overtures continues the pattern of placing rarities such as the lively student work, Grand'overtura 'obbligata a contrabasso,' and Matilde of Shabran, set in medieval Spain, alongside perennial hits such as The Italian Girl in Algiers and La Cenerentola (Cinderella), said to have been written in just three weeks. ClassicsToday described Volume 2 (8.570934) of this series as 'delightful ... amazing... strongly recommended.'

American Record Guide, May/June 2014
This is Volume 3 in the series from Naxos. The playing is stunning. The sound is excellent. I like Patane for Italian in Algiers, Beecham for Cambiale di Matrimonio, and Schippers for Cenerentola. Schippers is much slower than most recordings, and he builds it beautifully. Beecham is ebullient, as usual. I have always been content with collections of the major ones from people like Beecham, Reiner, and Patane.
