It was not so much the hunger for self-education and thirst for knowledge about past eras, distant lands and their customs which were the reason for corresponding themes and locations in Romantic opera, but more a type of escapism from the all too mundane and oppressive aspects of everyday life. The overtures in particular provided plenty of space for vivid imagination, as their purpose was to direct the fantasy of the listener in a particular direction without having to focus specifically on the concrete rigidities of the plot as subsequently depicted on the opera stage. The Württembergische Philharmonie Reutlingen under the direction of Ola Rudner present a selection of lesser known examples of Romantic overtures on this recording.
