Italian Girl in Algiers Overture is an operatic comedy from the early 18th century. The music is very characteristic of Rossini with lots of excitement and pure, elegant melodies. The opera was written in a very short time when the composer was only 21 years of age.
The overture begins slowly and quietly with sudden loud surprising outbursts of comedic effect.
Mr. Chasanov's arrangement for 13-part brass ensemble works perfectly for advanced performers, with each part having a fun and challenging time.
