Toscanini Collection, Vol.50

  • Don Giovanni, ~, Overture
  • Don Pasquale, Overture
  • Guillaume Tell, Pourquoi ta presence, ô mon père
  • (La) Wally, Orchestral interlude
  • Loreley
  • Manon Lescaut, Intermezzo
  • Luisa Miller, Overture
  • (La) traviata, Prelude
  • (La) traviata, Prelude
  • (I) Vespri siciliani, '(The) Sicilian Vespers', Overture
  • (La) forza del destino, '(The) force of destiny', Overture
  • Otello, Ballabile

The most rewarding items here are the Verdi overtures, which are ardently and dramatically performed. The Traviata preludes are played with exquisite tenderness, and the Overture to Don Pasquale has a certain perky charm. Apart from the Mozart, delivered in slightly tough fashion, the rest of the disc is pretty small beer, especially the uninspired Catalani pieces. '
