About

2018 marks the 150th anniversary of Gioacchino Rossini on 13 November. The Rossini Edition is the most comprehensive edition devoted to Rossini ever produced

Born in 1792, Rossini was the most popular opera composer of his time. Although he retired from the opera scene in 1829, he continued to compose in other genres, including sacred music, piano and chamber works. He did gather his late works under the ironic title Péchés de vieillesse (Sins of Old Age), which veils a true collection of masterworks.

It includes thirteen complete operas, the Rossini Gala – the legendary concert given at the Lincoln Center in 1992 – five complete recitals including the recent recording with Joyce DiDonato and the famous Rockwell Blake. It also includes a very nice collection of overtures and opera arias, three sacred works, plus clarinet, chamber and piano pieces among other rarities.
