An Early Evening Stroll
The other side of bel canto composers – Gioacchino Rossini – 3
In a short series of programmes about the other side of bel canto composers this is the fifth one. Vincenzo Bellini, Gaetano Donizetti and Gioacchino Rossini have mostly become and remained famous for their operas. However, they have also composed other music.
This is the third episode we dedicate to Gioacchino Rossini. You will be listening to works from his later years, when he had already stopped as a composer of opera music.
