Gioachino Rossini

Gioachino Antonio Rossini was an Italian composer who wrote 39 operas as well as sacred music, chamber music, songs, and some instrumental and piano pieces. His best-known operas include the Italian comedies Il barbiere di Siviglia (The Barber of Seville) and La cenerentola and the French-language epics Moise et Pharaon and Guillaume Tell (William Tell). A tendency for inspired, song-like melodies is evident throughout his scores, which led to the nickname "The Italian Mozart." Until his retirement in 1829, Rossini had been the most popular opera composer in history.

Gioachino Rossini : Petite Messe Solennelle

This is the best known of Rossini's Péchés de vieillesse or 'Sins of Old Age'. Although a sacred work, the mass is characteristically lyrical and effervescent, and it affirms the composer's optimistic and deeply felt faith. The work was premiered in 1864. Although Rossini also produced an orchestrated version of the work in 1867, it is reported that he preferred the original scoring, and indeed much of the work's appeal lies in the idiomatic keyboard parts. This edition is based on the autograph manuscript of this original 1864 version, and every effort has been made to honour Rossini's intentions and produce a performing score that is authentic, accurate, and practical.

The Barber of Seville Overture : SATTBB : Daryl Runswick : Gioachino Rossini : King's Singers : Songbook : 08743751 : 073999612417

Daryl Runswick : The Barber of Seville Overture

This well-known overture to Rossini's opera has been a long-time favorite in King's Singers concerts. From the subdued opening theme in the "strings" to the rousing "full-orchestra" close, this instrumental work is creatively brought to life - King's Singers style. Challenging, but well worth the effort.
