OverturesLike a “best of” collection for any modern artist, this cd features an hour-long array of 12 Mozart overtures from throughout his work. Previously unreleased, Virgin Classics is now releasing this masterful collection of overtures conducted by Yehudi Menuhin on its new mid-price series “The Classics.”

What is there to say about Mozart that hasn’t already been said in innumerable biographies, theses, and student essays over the past few hundred years? This collection of overtures is moving and energetic, each one a testament to Mozart’s prowess as a composer. With excerpts from Don Giovanni, The Impresario, Cosi fan tutte, and La clemenza di Tito, this selection of classical music is expertly executed by the Lausanne Chamber Orchestra with the infamous Yehudi Menuhin at the helm. Fans of classical music, and Mozart alike will thoroughly enjoy this lively collection, while listeners previously unaware of these works (like myself) will find themselves curiously drawn in by the upbeat tempos and unrelenting beauty of each overture. And with the warm fall cover design and baby-blue cd coloring, this new collection adds not only a touch of sophistry, but a touch of class to any music collection.
