I recently purchased this set. I love it! I must admit I didn't know these works before. I'm surprised this wonderful music doesn't get recorded more often.

The sonics are excellent, too. Breydon Music strongly recommended this set elsewhere on this site (under the Stereo Sound releases of the Rite of Spring with Solti and the Suite española with Frühbeck de Burgos). I thank him for his comments and add my voice to his in recommending this set.

I agree. Lovely pieces and amazing that they were written when Rossini was only 12 years old and it took him just 3 days! I got to know them through a superb set on Decca (Argo) from Neville Marriner and The Academy of St Martin in the Fields (1967). They were, however, composed for string quartet. The modern set I have now on SACD is from BIS and is the quartet version too. Very elegantly played.
