Gioacchino Rossini

a.k.a. Gioacchino Antonio Rossini

Author Code: TGAR

Born: Feb. 29, 1792 - Pesaro, Italy

Died: Nov. 13, 1868 - Paris, France

From a family of musicians, it was perhaps inevitable that Rossini would continue the tradition. He learned to play piano and composed a series of string sonatas when he was twelve. By the time he was 18, he had written his first opera, The Marriage Contract, which was performed in Venice. His first true success came in 1813 with the production of Tancrede. He quickly became a popular favourite and in 1815, was appointed director of theatres in San Carlo and Naples. The following year his masterpiece, The Barber of Seville, was performed at the Teatro Argentina in Rome. Rossini spent some time in England in 1823 before moving to Paris to become the musical director of the Theatre des Italiens. He returned to Bologna in 1829, but returned to Paris the following year. He moved between Bologna, Florene and Paris, where, in 1855, he settled permanently. In addition to his operas, Rossini also composed many cantatas, sacred music, instrumental works and piano pieces. He was also renowned as an excellent chef. His opera output was prolific,with 40 produced including Othello (1816), Zelmira (1822), Semiramide (1823) and William Tell (1829).
