The Cologne New Philharmonic Orchestra and Maestro Hartung are celebrating the genius of Gioachino Rossini, the most celebrated Opera Composer of all times.
His music sounds as Champagne sparkles!
Besides overtures to his famous operas Barber of Seville, The Italian in Alger, La Cenerentola and William Tell, this album contains instrumental works from his earliest days: Rossini wrote his sonatas for strings when he was just 12 years old. On this album Serbian flute virtuoso Dejan Gavric performs one of these joyful pieces together with the fabulous strings of the Cologne New Philharmonic.
With 18 years Rossini composed „Variations for Clarinet and small orchestra“. This work sounds like a coloratura aria for the clarinet and gives the soloist great opportunity to prove his virtuosic talents, as Greek clarinetist Miltos Mumulides shows brilliantly!
