Description: These overtures come from works covering most of the 19th century, from the 1834 Mountain Sylph to the 1893 Golden Web. The earlier ones are quite in the Italian style of the period (Rossini, Donizetti, Bellini) while the two latest ones take more notice of things Germanic and Romantic. Well-filled at just under 75 minutes. Victorian Opera Orchestra; Richard Bonynge.
