      Rossini: Maometto II: Overture (11:15)

      Prague Sinfonia Orchestra / Christian Benda

      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’ alongside perennial hits such as The Italian Girl in Algiers and Cinderella, said to have been written in just three weeks. ClassicsToday.com described Volume 2 of this series as “delightful…amazing…strongly recommended.”
