      Rossini: Il Turco in Italia: Overture (9:00)

      Prague Sinfonia Orchestra / Christian Benda

      The enduring popularity of Rossini’s operas is a testament to their wit and inventiveness, every overture a superb portrait of each ensuing drama. There is none more popular than the farcical comedy of Il barbiere di Siviglia, but themes of flirtation and disguise can also be found in Il Turco in Italia, contrasting with the heroism and revenge of Armida and the cunning exploits of Le Comte Ory. This series, of which this is the final installment, has gained wide critical acclaim.
