Gioachino Rossini is a well known Italian composer who wrote a lot of operas, as well as sacred music, chamber music and some piano pieces. Rossini moved to France and helped usher in the French grand opera. Rossini was a prolific composer and earned the nick name “The Italian Mozart.” There is too much work from Rossini, but I am slowly going to chip away at it. For this weekend I am going to roll out The Barber of Seville. Enjoy it, and turn up those speakers! Have a great weekend!
