Many of us grew up listening to classical music as background for evening radio shows. The Rossini Overtures were frequently used and one of the most famous is the William Tell Overture. You will find a number of Rossini CDs to choose from on Amazon. The one I am linking to happens to be the CD I have and it is very enjoyable. Your music collection should include at least one CD that holds an array of Rossini's work.
