"It is wonderful to hear a German radio orchestra sounding so idiomatic in Rossini,
and the playing is a constant joy."

MusicWeb on the Radio Symphony Orchestra Stuttgart: II Barbiere di Siviglia (100 090)

Rossini is deemed to be the most successful opera composer of his time. His overtures are truly masterpieces, despite the fact that they were created in the majority of cases the night before the work's premiere. As Rossini remarked, "nothing primes inspiration more than necessity". Yet their fascinating rhythm, as well as their dramatic and vivacious melodies, make the overtures some of the most familiar, often played pieces of classical music.

Here the excellent Radio Symphony Orchestra Stuttgart performs under some of its leading conductors, such as Alberto Zedda, renowned as the foremost Rossini expert, Uri Segal and Wolf-Dieter Hauschild.
