Naxos' series of Domenico Cimarosa's overtures has featured different pairings of conductors with orchestras: Patrick Gallois appeared on Vol. 3 with the Sinfonia Finlandia Jyväskylä, and the Czech Chamber Philharmonic Orchestra was conducted by Michael Halász on Vol. 4. For this fifth volume, Gallois and the Czech Chamber Philharmonic Orchestra join forces in six multi-movement and five single-movement selections, all composed in the Classical style and sometimes related to the early 18th century symphony. Because Cimarosa's operas and cantatas have become quite obscure, their overtures provide the best chance of a revival, even though the bulk of them are seldom performed or recorded. They are typically light and spirited, and similar in flavor to Mozart and Rossini, especially in their tunefulness, elegance, and cheerfulness. That none of these pieces are in the concert repertoire today shouldn't put off listeners, because Cimarosa's music is immediately accessible and infectious, and the overtures are short enough that a handful can be appreciated in a single sitting. Sample any track, though the overture to "La bella Greca" suggests the broader symphonic implications of the Classical operatic overture, while "L'Olimpiade" shows how Cimarosa handled a more compact form.
