Opera Overtures from The Thieving MagpieThe Silken LadderThe Barber of SevilleSemiramideWilliam Tell – London Symphony Orchestra conducted by Pierino Gamba

This is a good collection. The performances are taut and exciting and the orchestra playing splendidly alive and polished, even at the very fast speeds sometimes chosen for the allegros. A strong disciplining force – not unlike Toscanini’s style – is felt in every piece, and care in phrasing is noticeable at every turn. Particularly captivating is the string cantilena at the introduction of The Barber Of Seville, which is phrased with a wonderful sense of line. Decca’s recording is quite superlative.
