Star singers were still paid more than composers, but the composer was increasingly the dominant force. Many of those who fled the city returned, and musical life flourished once more. The rest of the Italian cast bring a welcome clarity of enunciation and relish to their words despite a rather resonant recording. Though an excellent opera, it is rarely heard uncut today, as the original score runs more than four hours in performance. In such instances, we may observe a literary platitude realized in the flesh: the blossoming of art is blighted by the frost of over-civilization. x However, I refuse to be drawn into the odious particular conse quences of these general considerations; instead, I shall plunge with out further ado into the history of Rossini's development In 1810, when this great composer first embarked upon his career, there was perhaps no art which had suffered so terribly from the calamitous effects of a whole decade of sublime wars and sordid reactions as the art of singing.

However, what makes Semiramide a truly classical work is above all its formal structure. It was not heard in public until 1869, the year after his death, when it was performed in the composer�s own orchestral version at the Th��tre Italien. That poor audience would be bored to death; and the reason is simple because it would find itself being addressed in a foreign lan guage which it thinks it knows, but which in fact it needs to sit down and re-learn from the beginning. At one point in his works, we find the following phrase, written in Italian: Zanetto, lascia le dome, e studia la matematica! 1 ACT TWO I know nothing more exciting than the entry of Taddeo in the second act: Ah! signor Mustafa!* The librettist shows some skill at this point; a powerful situation is created, sketched in a few words, and set out with great clarity and superb comic effect.

Beginning in Germany and England in the 1770s, by the 1820s it had swept through Europe, conquering at last even its most stubborn foe, the French. Whereupon he leapt 1 Maestro, it only took an hour's work. 314 LIFE OF ROSSINI out of bed, and, sitting down to a table (still in his nightshirt), dashed off the music for the Prayer in eight or ten minutes at the most, with out a piano, and undeterred by the conversation of his friends, which continued as loud as ever regardless of his preoccupations, everyone talking away at the top of his voice, as is normal in Italy. "Here's your music take it!" he barked finally at the librettist, who promptly vanished, leaving Rossini to jump back into bed, convulsed with laughter at Totola's fright.

If the populous Jewish communities of eastern Europe were producing composers at this time, we haven't heard of them. Toulouse, incidentally, has something in its singing, some strange and sombre colouring in its atmosphere, particularly in its religious atmosphere, which re minds me of some typical city in the Papal States. Bach’s name will appear on a good many of these lists, because he did a good many things. After moving back to Italy, Rossini became a widower in 1845.

Six movements of his Stabat Mater were written in 1832 and the rest in 1839, the year of his fathers death, and the success of the work bears comparison with his achievements in opera; but his comparative silence during the period from 1832 to 1868 makes his biography appear almost like the narrative of two livesthe life of swift triumph, and the long life of seclusion, of which the biographers give us pictures in stories of the composers cynical wit, his speculations in fish culture, his mask of humility and indifference.

The second movement of this concerto is nicknamed "Elvira Madigan" because of its heavy usage in the 1967 film of the same name. His father was a choral director, organist, and music teacher. Why did opera begin in Italy and thrive there as nowhere else?

Germany has been the epicenter of classical music, with the presence of Bach, Beethoven, Brahms, the Strauss family, Bruckner etc.

Studied folk music and founder of ethnomusicology. Rosa bianco e la Rosa rossa, la (opera seria). The quality in music, which makes of it the most enthralling plea sure that the soul can know, and which gives it so marked an advan tage over even the finest poetry, over Jerusalem, for instance, or over Lalla-Rookh, lies in the powerful element of physical intoxication which it contains.
