Overture in G major, Op 4 No 9
The Overture in G major by the immigrant oboist and composer Francesco Barsanti uses ‘Country bumpkin’, but worked into an elaborate contrapuntal allegro movement. It is followed by a touchingly expressive Andantino and a minuet-like Allegro.

from notes by Peter Holman 2000
