Listing Detail Tabs

While today's houses swell with the works of numerous undoubted masters of
the operatic genre, not one of these now legendary composers enjoyed the immense
success and popularity during their lifetimes that was experienced by a man born
in Pesaro, on the Italian Adriatic coast, in 1792.

The composer of no less than 39 operas, he was the darling of the Italian
golden era in this field, adored not only in his home country but around Europe,
and was a major contribution to the development of opera going as a culture in
19th Century Italy.

Rossini was known to be a composer who completed works at great speed. The
legend behind the premier of La gazza ladra (The Thieving Magpie) has the
producer locking Rossini into a room the day before the opening night in order
for him to write the overture, with pages of the score being thrown to copyists
from a window as they were completed.

Rossini played on original instruments by The Hanover Band and they thus
recorded one of its most spectacular albums under the baton of its leader Roy
Goodman.

Newton Classics is proud to issue this marvel.
