Notes & Reviews:

Rossini wrote these six sonatas for strings - two violins, cello and double-bass - at the precocious age of twelve. He was scathing about them in later life, even after transcribing them for string quartet - a form in which they have retained popularity and a place in the record catalogue - but they reveal in more than embryonic form his talent for virtuosic writing and his infallible ear for a fine tune, no less than Mendelssohn's string symphonies do at a similar age. These sonatas take on new colors, transcribed for flute, clarinet, horn and bassoon, and dispatched with elan by the wind principals of the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra.
