Rossini: Complete Overtures, Volume 1
Rossini: Semiramide: Overture (12:27)
Prague Sinfonia Orchestra / Christian Benda
Rossini wrote some of music’s most masterful and lovable operas. His gift for comic and tragic forms was matched by a relish for characterisation, qualities that are always evident in his overtures. This is the first of four discs of the complete Rossini overtures on the Naxos label.
