I'm really enjoying the series of overtures and orchestral extracts on Naxos. There was a project initiated with the Orchestre de Cannes under Wolfgang Dorner in 2016 but this was for some reason aborted, although described as volume 1 - nevertheless it's a great disc of "lollipops" (Naxos 8.573553).

In 2019 a splendid new Naxos series conducted by Dario Salvi began, and has now reached volume 5. All these discs are full of such wonderful music, and extremely well-played and conducted.

Auber is often overlooked but he was a major player and a significant influence on many composers, not least Sullivan who edited several of his operas in vocal score for Boosey...

Yes,a very talented composer! :)
