First performed in Rome in 1816, this overture is among Rossini's most-loved orchestral works. Your students will undoubtedly recognize the infectious main theme from its frequent use in commercials and even Bugs Bunny cartoons! This arrangement highlights the individual colors of the woodwind, brass and string sections, yet remains so close to Rossini's original, your young orchestra will sound as if they're playing the real thing!
