Rossini's popular overture is now available with complete performance material on sale. It is newly edited based on the forthcoming volume of the "Works of Gioachino Rossini" (BA10506).
This scholarly-critical practical edition contains almost two works in one as Rossini composed this overture firstly for his opera "Aureliano in Palmira" and then also used it in "The Barber of Seville". The two overtures differ simply in their instrumentation.
This new edition is an Urtext edition. Free of later additions to the instrumentation and other changes, it reproduces this famous work in the version which Rossini intended.
Conductors can now choose to perform the overture to "The Barber of Seville" without the frequently added second flute, second oboe and drums, which were not part of the opera's original instrumentation.
