Inhaltsangabe: Rossini's popularity in Italy in the early 1820s was certainly not echoed in France, where he was regarded as "an ill-bred parvenu, whose cheap popularity was an insult to a great musical tradition". Stendhal, always an obstinate individualist, was the first of his contemporaries to recognize the genius of this important Italian composer. Details of Rossini's early life are followed by penetrating discussions of the operas, libretti, personalities of the period and Rossini's own character. Besides being a fascinating and penetrating account of the Italian composer's most creative years, and of contemporary musical events and opinions, this work is one of the finest items in the Stendhalian literary canon. Richard Coe's elegant translation (revised for the second edition) and careful annotations do full justice to the incandescent strength of Stendhal's prose style.

Rezension: "The best appreciation of Rossini ever written." --Ernest Newman, author, "The Wagner Operas"
