ABOUT ROSSINI - World’s FAVORITE
Gioacchino Antonio ROSSINI was a prolific music composer. He 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 Moïse et Pharaon (Mose’ ed il Faraone/Moses and the Pharaoh) and Guillaume Tell (Guglielmo 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 ... And he is even more popular today!
