Last updated: 29.04.22
According to The New Penguin Dictionary of Music, Gioacchino [Antonio] Rossini was an Italian composer born at Pesaro. His operas appeared in various Italian cities; he visited England in 1823-4, and after 1829 lived partly in Paris, where he died. Successful in opera from 1810, although the "Barber of Seville" (1816) was at first a failure. He wrote many famous operas including "William Tell" (1829, in French after which success he lived for nearly 40 years but wrote no more operas). Other works include "Sabat Mater" and a few other church works; a few songs and duets (among them the collection "Soirées Musicales") and piano pieces, etc. Exploiter of the orchestra crescendo, and noted in his day for "noisy" effects.
