Gioachino Rossini

The Italian composer GIOCINO ROSSINI is famous for its exceptional performance. At the age of 20, he had already gained the fame of the most popular and beloved opera composer in Italy. He is the author of more than 30 operas. Their tunes became singalongs for the audience.

Between 1810 and 1813 the young Rossini had composed four farces. Acting and comedy talent is very important for performing such works, in comparison to many genres of opera art. Il signor Bruschino is defined as a vital musical comedy. Giuseppe Maria Foppa’s libretto is based on the French play of 1809 „Le fils par hasard, ou ruse et folie” (The Accidental Son or Cunning and Madness) by René de Chazet and Maurice Ourry. The opera was first performed in Venice at the Teatro San Moisè on January 27th, 1813. After Rossini’s friends heard the overture to it, they nicknamed the composer „Mr. Crescendo,” which best illustrates the passion and speed which the composer worked with. The first scene of the opera begins with the aria of Florville, who is in love with Sofia – Deh Tu M’assisti Amore (Oh, you help me love).

La Pietra del Paragone (The Touchstone) is a cheerful melodrama in two acts based on the libretto by Luigi Romanelli. Its first performance was at the Teatro alla Scala, Milan, on September 26th, 1812. The Giocondo’s aria from the second act Quell’alme pupille is very popular.
