"[42] Nonetheless the piece proved generally popular, and held the stage in frequent revivals until it was overshadowed by Verdi's version, seven decades later. From the early 1830s to 1855, when he left Paris and was based in Bologna, Rossini wrote relatively little. [110], By the early 1850s Rossini's mental and physical health had deteriorated to the point where his wife and friends feared for his sanity or his life. On his return to Paris in 1855 he became renowned for his musical salons on Saturdays, regularly attended by musicians and the artistic and fashionable circles of Paris, for which he wrote the entertaining pieces Péchés de vieillesse. "[39] The new opera was received with tremendous enthusiasm, as was the Neapolitan premiere of L'italiana in Algeri, and Rossini's position in Naples was assured. Not only did Rossini compose some of his finest operas for Naples, but these operas profoundly affected operatic composition in Italy and made possible the developments that were to lead to Verdi.[38]. He is scathing about the self-borrowings in the first two acts, but concedes that the third act "so firmly established Rossini's reputation in Venice that even a thousand follies could not rob him of it. Rossini's withdrawal from opera for the last 40 years of his life has never been fully explained; contributary factors may have been ill-health, the wealth his success had brought him, and the rise of spectacular grand opera under composers such as Giacomo Meyerbeer. © 2010 ANSC . [65] Rossini and Colbran had signed contracts for an opera season at the King's Theatre in the Haymarket. in 2018 values – see. Already in 1818, Meyerbeer had heard rumours that Rossini was seeking a lucrative appointment at the Paris Opéra – "Should [his proposals] be accepted, he will go to the French capital, and we will perhaps experience curious things. For these reasons, Richard Osborne suggests, the piece has been somewhat overlooked among Rossini's compositions. [44], Such structural integration of the forms of vocal music with the dramatic development of the opera meant a sea-change from the Metastasian primacy of the aria; in Rossini's works, solo arias progressively take up a smaller proportion of the operas, in favour of duets (also typically in cantabile-caballetta format) and ensembles. [36], The musical establishment of Naples was not immediately welcoming to Rossini, who was seen as an intruder into its cherished operatic traditions. [126] In 1887 his remains were moved to the church of Santa Croce, Florence. [154] Tell was very successful from the start and was frequently revived – in 1868 the composer was present at its 500th performance at the Opéra. She and Colbran had never got on well, and Servadio suggests that after Anna died Rossini came to resent the surviving woman in his life. [131][134] He also liberally re-employed arias and other sequences in later works. [135] Rossini expressed his disgust when the publisher Giovanni Ricordi issued a complete edition of his works in the 1850s: "The same pieces will be found several times, for I thought I had the right to remove from my fiascos those pieces which seemed best, to rescue them from shipwreck ... A fiasco seemed to be good and dead, and now look they've resuscitated them all! [n 39], If Rossini's principal legacy to Italian opera was in vocal forms and dramatic structure for serious opera, his legacy to French opera was to provide a bridge from opera buffa to the development of opéra comique (and thence, via Jacques Offenbach's opéras bouffes to the genre of operetta). Of the finale to the first act of L'italiana in Algeri, Taruskin writes that "[r]unning through almost a hundred pages of vocal score in record time, it is the most concentrated single dose of Rossini that there is. By the middle of the decade it was clear that he needed to return to Paris for the most advanced medical care then available. [51] He travelled with Colbran, in March 1822, breaking their journey at Bologna, where they were married in the presence of his parents in a small church in Castenaso a few miles from the city. The other was to be with his new mistress, Olympe Pélissier. The formal "classicist" libretti of Metastasio which had underpinned late 18th century opera seria were replaced by subjects more to the taste of the age of Romanticism, with stories demanding stronger characterisation and quicker action; a jobbing composer needed to meet these demands or fail. Lo Stabat Mater per coro e orchestra (insieme alla Petite Messe Solennelle) ruppe quel leggendario “silenzio” di Rossini che iniziò dopo il Guillaume Tell (1829) e durò fino alla morte del compositore (1868). "[136], Rossini's handling of arias (and duets) in cavatina style marked a development from the eighteenth-century commonplace of recitative and aria. [140] The influence was lasting; Gossett notes how the Rossinian cabaletta style continued to inform Italian opera as late as Giuseppe Verdi's Aida (1871). He recovered his health and joie de vivre. [13][14] Stendhal, who published a colourful biography of Rossini in 1824,[15] wrote: Rossini's portion from his father, was the true native heirship of an Italian: a little music, a little religion, and a volume of Ariosto. [122] In the same year Rossini was made a grand officer of the Legion of Honour by Napoleon III. These included the Teatro di San Carlo,[31] the city's leading opera house; its manager Domenico Barbaia was to be an important influence on the composer's career there. [111] Rossini returned to Paris aged sixty-three and made it his home for the rest of his life. [44], During the late 18th-century, creators of opera buffa had increasingly developed dramatic integration of the finales of each act. [18] He studied the horn with his father and other music with a priest, Giuseppe Malerbe, whose extensive library contained works by Haydn and Mozart, both little known in Italy at the time, but inspirational to the young Rossini. In 1815 he was engaged to write operas and manage theatres in Naples. Paolo Fanale, tenore - Roberto Tagliavini, basso, Mozart, Sinfonia n. 39 K 543 [64], Once in England, Rossini was received and made much of by the king, George IV, although the composer was by now unimpressed by royalty and aristocracy. "[148] [181] All of Rossini's operas have been recorded. [85] It nonetheless was produced abroad within months of the premiere,[n 24] and there was no suspicion that it would be the composer's last opera. Among the composers who attended the salons, and sometimes performed, were Auber, Gounod, Liszt, Rubinstein, Meyerbeer and Verdi. [17] In 1798, when Rossini was aged six, his mother began a career as a professional singer in comic opera, and for a little over a decade was a considerable success in cities including Trieste and Bologna, before her untrained voice began to fail. [106] More controversial was the pasticcio opera of Robert Bruce (1846), in which Rossini, by then returned to Bologna, closely cooperated by selecting music from his past operas which had not yet been performed in Paris, notably La donna del lago. 1. [83] Gaetano Donizetti remarked that the first and last acts of the opera were written by Rossini, but the middle act was written by God. A formulaic approach was logistically indispensable for Rossini's career, at least at the start: in the seven years 1812–1819, he wrote 27 operas,[132] often at extremely short notice. "[117] The music, carefully chosen by Rossini, was not only his own, but included works by Pergolesi, Haydn and Mozart and modern pieces by some of his guests. [44] In 1817 came the first performance of one of his operas (L'Italiana) at the Theâtre-Italien in Paris; its success led to others of his operas being staged there, and eventually to his contract in Paris from 1824 to 1830. Le sue spoglie furono tumulate nel cimitero parigino del Père Lachaise per essere poi traslate in Italia nel 1887, su iniziativa del governo italiano, e riposano definitivamente nella Basilica di Santa Croce, a Firenze. [87], Jointly with Semiramide, Guillaume Tell is Rossini's longest opera, at three hours and forty-five minutes,[88] and the effort of composing it left him exhausted. [153], Rossini's government contract required him to create at least one new "grand opėra", and Rossini settled on the story of William Tell, working closely with the librettist Étienne de Jouy. Gossett in a very detailed analysis of the first-act finale of Tancredi identifies several the elements in Rossini's practice. He also composed opera seria works such as Otello, Tancredi and Semiramide. [127], Rossini, in a letter of 1868 (citing Voltaire)[128], The writer Julian Budden, noting the formulas adopted early on by Rossini in his career and consistently followed by him thereafter as regards overtures, arias, structures and ensembles, has called them "the Code Rossini" in a reference to the Code Napoléon, the legal system established by the French Emperor. His music from his final decade was not generally intended for public performance, and he did not usually put dates of composition on the manuscripts. [n 41] The Operabase performance-listing website records 2,319 performances of 532 productions of Rossini operas in 255 venues across the world in the three years 2017–2019. The newspaper Le Globe commented that a new era of music had begun. Rossini's contract required him to provide five new works for the Opéra over 10 years. The score was reconstructed from rediscovered manuscripts in the 1970s, and has since been staged and recorded. It had been agreed that the composer would produce one grand opera for the Académie Royale de Musique and either an opera buffa or an opera semiseria for the Théâtre-Italien. [26] Rossini followed the success of his first piece with three more farse for the house: L'inganno felice (1812),[n 6] La scala di seta (1812),[n 7] and Il signor Bruschino (1813). [76] About half the score of Le comte Ory (1828) is from the earlier work. 9) in 1936 and Matinées musicales (Op. Rossini also provided for the Opéra a shorter, three-act version, which incorporated the pas redoublé (quick march) final section of the overture in its finale; it was first performed in 1831 and became the basis of the Opéra's future productions. A stream of pieces, for voices, choir, piano, and chamber ensembles, written for his soirées, the Péchés de vieillesse (Sins of old age) were issued in thirteen volumes from 1857 to 1868; of these volumes 4 to 8 comprise "56 semi-comical piano pieces .... dedicated to pianists of the fourth class, to which I have the honour of belonging. Charles X was overthrown in a revolution in July 1830, and the new administration, headed by Louis Philippe I, announced radical cutbacks in government spending. [33], 1814 was a less remarkable year for the rising composer, neither Il turco in Italia[n 11] or Sigismondo pleasing the Milanese or Venetian public, respectively. All of these attracted admiration for their innovation in melody, harmonic and instrumental colour, and dramatic form. "[143], With extremely few exceptions, all Rossini's compositions before the Péchés de vieillesse of his retirement involve the human voice. Richard Osborne catalogues its excellencies: Beyond the physical impact of ... Figaro's "Largo al factotum", there is Rossini's ear for vocal and instrumental timbres of a peculiar astringency and brilliance, his quick-witted word-setting, and his mastery of large musical forms with their often brilliant and explosive internal variations. [31] In mid-1812 he received a commission from La Scala, Milan, where his two-act comedy La pietra del paragone[n 9] ran for fifty-three performances, a considerable run for the time, which brought him not only financial benefits, but exemption from military service and the title of maestro di cartello – a composer whose name on advertising posters guaranteed a full house. It was publicly staged in 1812, after the composer's first successes. [116] For their weekly salons he produced more than 150 pieces, including songs, solo piano pieces, and chamber works for many different combinations of instruments. [144] These qualities are also evident in Rossini's early operas, especially his farse (one-act farces), rather than his more formal opere serie. "[107], The period after 1835 saw Rossini's formal separation from his wife, who remained at Castenaso (1837), and the death of his father at the age of eighty (1839). [161] Gossett writes of the Péchés "Their historical position remains to be assessed but it seems likely that their effect, direct or indirect, on composers like Camille Saint-Saëns and Erik Satie was significant. He set new standards for both comic and serious opera before retiring from large-scale composition while still in his thirties, at the height of his popularity. He was a quick learner, and by the age of twelve he had composed a set of six sonatas for four stringed instruments, which were performed under the aegis of a rich patron in 1804. [141] In his comic operas Rossini brought this technique to its peak, and extended its range far beyond his predecessors. For the first time, Rossini was able to work over a long period with a company of musicians and singers, including amongst the latter Isabella Colbran, Andrea Nozzari, Giovanni David and others, who as Gossett notes "all specialized in florid singing" and "whose vocal talents left an indelible and not wholly positive mark on Rossini's style". Within a year events in Paris had Rossini hurrying back. Although he was not as feverishly acclaimed by the Parisians as he had been in Vienna, he nevertheless had an exceptionally welcoming reception from the musical establishment and the public. [124] He left Olympe a life interest in his estate, which after her death, ten years later, passed to the Commune of Pesaro for the establishment of a Liceo Musicale, and funded a home for retired opera singers in Paris. Il suo monumento funebre, realizzato da Giuseppe Cassioli, fu inaugurato nel 1900. Born in Pesaro to parents who were both musicians (his father a trumpeter, his mother a singer), Rossini began to compose by the age of 12 and was educated at music school in Bologna. 24) in 1941. [34][35] 1815 marked an important stage in Rossini's career. "[158] This was an era, it transpired, in which Rossini was not to participate. [99][100] Gossett and Richard Osborne suggest that illness may have been a major factor in Rossini's retirement. If such developments were not necessarily Rossini's own invention, he nevertheless made them his own by his expert handling of them. [32] Within weeks of Tancredi, Rossini had another box-office success with his comedy L'italiana in Algeri,[n 10] composed in great haste and premiered in May 1813. 5 "[175] In an 1877 review of Il barbiere, he noted that Adelina Patti sang as an encore in the lesson scene "Home, Sweet Home"[n 40] but that "the opera proved so intolerably wearisome that some of her audience had already displayed their appreciation of the sentiment of the ballad in the most practical way. [49] An insurrection in Naples against the monarchy, though quickly crushed, unsettled Rossini;[50] when Barbaia signed a contract to take the company to Vienna, Rossini was glad to join them, but did not reveal to Barbaia that he had no intention of returning to Naples afterwards. In 1816, for the Teatro Argentina in Rome, he composed the opera that was to become his best-known: Il barbiere di Siviglia (The Barber of Seville). [91] They include the Soirées musicales (1830–1835: a set of twelve songs for solo or duet voices and piano) and his Stabat Mater (begun in 1831 and completed in 1841). [152] One of the most striking additions was the chorus at the end of Act III of Moïse, with a crescendo repetition of a diatonic ascending bass line, rising first by a minor third, then by a major third, at each appearance, and a descending chromatic top line, which roused the excitement of audiences. Living in Bologna, he occupied himself teaching singing at the Liceo Musicale, and also created a pasticcio of Tell, Rodolfo di Sterlinga, for the benefit of the singer Nikolay Ivanov, for which Giuseppe Verdi provided some new arias. [118] Violinists such as Pablo Sarasate and Joseph Joachim, and the leading singers of the day were regular guests. [164] At the end of the manuscript, the composer wrote, Dear God, here it is finished, this poor little Mass. [133], Such pressures led to a further significant element of Rossini's compositional procedures, not included in Budden's "Code", namely, recycling. Consequently, musicologists have found it difficult to give definite dates for his late works, but the first, or among the first, was the song cycle Musique anodine, dedicated to his wife and presented to her in April 1857. [26] The following year his first opera seria, Tancredi, did well at La Fenice in Venice, and even better at Ferrara, with a rewritten, tragic ending. Nel 1823 Rossini arrivò a Parigi già preceduto dalla fama di genio, e venne subito coinvolto nel dibattito culturale sulla gastronomia che a quel tempo impegnava molti intellettuali francesi. ", Gioachino Rossini è stato ed è molto amato anche all'estero; sulla sua figura sono stati scritti molti libri e biografie. Daniel W. Schwartz hypothesises that Rossini's failure to write any more operas after 1829 was due to "narcissistic withdrawal and depression" following his mother's death two years earlier. Venite ad ascoltare dal vivo lo Stabat Mater di Rossini! I offer these modest songs to my dear wife Olympe as a simple testimony of gratitude for the affectionate, intelligent care which she lavished on me during my overlong and terrible illness.

His return to Paris in 1843 for medical treatment by Jean Civiale sparked hopes that he might produce a new grand opera – it was rumoured that Eugène Scribe was preparing a libretto for him about Joan of Arc. Gossett notes that these early works were written at a time when "[t]he deposited mantles of Cimarosa and Paisiello were unfilled" – these were Rossini's first, and increasingly appreciated, steps in trying them on. "[176], In the early 20th century Rossini received tributes from both Ottorino Respighi, who had orchestrated excerpts from the Péchés de viellesse both in his ballet la boutique fantasque (1918) and in his 1925 suite Rossiniana,[177] and from Benjamin Britten, who adapted music by Rossini for two suites, Soirées musicales (Op. [38] Between 1815 and 1822 he composed eighteen more operas: nine for Naples and nine for opera houses in other cities. When he attended a performance of Il barbiere at the Théâtre-Italien he was applauded, dragged onto the stage, and serenaded by the musicians. [66][67], In a 2003 biography of the composer, Gaia Servadio comments that Rossini and England were not made for each other. His Otello (1816) provoked Lord Byron to write, "They have been crucifying Othello into an opera: music good, but lugubrious – but as for the words! Such gatherings were a regular feature of Parisian life – the writer James Penrose has observed that the well-connected could easily attend different salons almost every night of the week – but the Rossinis' samedi soirs quickly became the most sought after: "an invitation was the city's highest social prize. [89] Attempting to restore the annuity was one of Rossini's reasons for returning. Nel 2018 ricorrono i 150 della scomparsa di Gioachino Rossini, avvenuta il 13 novembre 1868. TUTTI I DIRITTI SONO RISERVATI . Verdi later reworked his own contribution, "Libera me", in his own, In 2018 the company's recent and planned productions included. [n 25] Others, then and later, suggested that Rossini had retired because of pique at the successes of Giacomo Meyerbeer and Fromental Halévy in the genre of grand opéra. [91][92] Some have supposed that aged thirty-seven and in variable health, having negotiated a sizeable annuity from the French government, and having written thirty-nine operas, he simply planned to retire and kept to that plan. The rest of his education was consigned to the legitimate school of southern youth, the society of his mother, the young singing girls of the company, those prima donnas in embryo, and the gossips of every village through which they passed. Public opinion was not improved by Rossini's failure to provide a new opera, as promised. The London production was "selected and adapted to the English stage" by, Heine added that the title "The Swan of Pesaro", sometimes applied to Rossini, was clearly wrong: "Swans sing at the end of their lives, but Rossini has become silent in the middle of his. Spike Hughes notes that of the twenty-six numbers of Eduardo e Cristina, produced in Venice in 1817, nineteen were lifted from previous works. A little technique, a little heart, that's all. Arsace in Aureliano was sung by the castrato Giambattista Velluti; this was the last opera role Rossini wrote for a castrato singer as the norm became to use contralto voices – another sign of change in operatic taste.
