EMI Classics' reissue of Carlo Maria Giulini's recordings of Rossini overtures is a mainstay of the catalog, and it's hard to beat for its first-rate performances and affordability. The overtures to La scala di seta, Il signor Bruschino, Tancredi, L'italiana in Algeri, Il barbiere di Siviglia, La cenerentola, La gazza ladra, Semiramide, and Guillaume Tell are the most famous of Rossini's works, though most of the operas associated with them are rarely performed (and with the exception of the popular Il barbiere di Siviglia, seldom recorded). The interpretations are spot-on and the playing is as lively, vibrant, and exciting as can be expected of these popular concert pieces. Giulini and the Philharmonia Orchestra recorded the tracks on this disc in 1961 and 1965, and the stereo sound is extraordinary for the time, thanks to the careful preservation of the original master tapes. The compilation was digitally remastered in 2004, so the reproduction is as good as one might wish, with no discernable analog hiss or any loss of audio quality. This album is an excellent choice for beginners who are building a basic classical collection. © TiVo

Big-hearted, open-hearted, warm-hearted, take your pick: whatever its other attributes, Carlo Maria Giulini's 1975 recording of Beethoven's Missa Solemnis with the London Philharmonic Orchestra & Chorus has a heart as big as all outdoors. Under Giulini's tender hands, the Missa Solemnis is above all else a lyrical work, a work where every line sings and every instrument is a voice. One gets the sense that Giulini loves every note and every musician and every moment of the performance, and his affection transforms his Missa Solemnis into a festival of love. This is, of course, a good thing and pretty much what Beethoven was driving at when he said of the Missa Solemnis that it "comes from the heart," but love is not all there is to the work. And while Giulini's Missa Solemnis has a lot of heart, it doesn't have much else going for it. Which is not to say that it is not superbly sung and played; Giulini's British musicians give him their best. It is to say that the work is not all there. The profound soulfulness, the transcendent spirituality, the overwhelming sense that the numinous is imminent: all of it and everything is drowned in Giulini's sea of love. As heartfelt as Giulini's is, stick with Otto Klemperer's 1965 recording, one of the most sublime recordings ever made. EMI's stereo sound was a little dim and distant in its day and the digital remastering is only a little better. © TiVo
