Rossini had a truly explosive effect when, at the age of eighteen, his comic one-act farce La cambiale di matrimonio was staged at the San Moisé theatre in Venice, on the evening of November 3, 1810. From that moment, Rossini’s career would be a series of masterpieces, with triumphs and flops. It was in the comic genre that he achieved his greatest successes, with works such as L’Italiana in Algeri (1813), Il Turco in Italia (1814), Il barbiere di Siviglia (1816), and Cenerentola (1817), which was Rossini’s last great comic work in the traditional sense.

Between 1817 and 1819, year of Guillaume Tell that prematurely cut short his operatic career, Rossini composed fifteen serious operas and only three comic ones; but he had already given his best in his incomparable youth, with the four incredible masterpieces in this box set.

In this release, Dynamic assembles some of the most famous opera buffa by Rossini, played by great performers, conductors and directors, including the rarely performed works La Gazzetta, L’Equivoco stravagante, and La Cambiale di matrimonio.
