Gioachino Rossini
Melodia semplice e variet? nel ritmo.
Rossini quotes
Cette petite composition qui est, hélas, le dernier péché mortel de ma vieillesse.
Rossini
Rossini, divino Maestro, Helios von Italien, der du deine klingenden Strahlen über die Welt verbreitest!




Rossini Gioachino quotes
Aspettate fino alla sera prima del giorno fissato per la rappresentazione. Nessuna cosa eccita pi? l'estro come la necessit?, la presenza d'un copista, che aspetta il vostro lavoro e la ressa d'un impresario in angustie, che si strappa a ciocche i capelli. A tempo mio in Italia tutti gli impresari erano calvi a trent'anni.
Rossini Gioachino
Rossini, in music, is the genius of sheer animal spirits. It is a species as inferior to that of Mozart, as the cleverness of a smart boy is to that of a man of sentiment; but it is genius nevertheless.
Gioachino Rossini quotes
Bon Dieu; la voil? terminée, cette pauvre petite messe. Est-ce bien de la musique sacrée que je viens de faire, ou bien de la sacré musique ? J'étais né pour l'opera buffa, tu le sais bien! Peu de science, un peu de coeur, tout est l?. Sois donc béni et accorde-moi le Paradis.
Gioachino Rossini
His moral deficiencies as an artist were quite extraordinary. When he found the natural superiority of his genius in conflict with the ignorance and frivolity of the public – and the musical ignorance and frivolity of the Venetians and Neapolitans can hardly be overstated – he surrendered without a struggle. Although he was so able a man that it was easier and pleasanter to him to do his work intelligently than to conventionalize it and write down to the popular taste, he never persevered in any innovation that was not well received.
Rossini Gioachino quotes
Music is a kind of harmonious language.
Rossini
Monsieur Wagner a de beaux moments, mais de mauvais quart d'heures.
