The distillation of Rossini's genius for opera are found in his operatic overtures. The themes around which his masterworks were constructed are presented in shorter pieces containing all the wit, invention and tragicomic flair of the larger works. Naxos continues the four volume series with Volume 2, containing his best known overture, William Tell.
