Gioacchino Rossini Biography:

Gioacchino Rossini was born on February 29, 1792 in Pesaro, Italy. He was the premiere composer of "Opera Buffa" (Comic Opera) and composed in the style of "bel canto" (beautiful singing).

Rossini suffered from a malady known as "neurasthenia" (a mental disorder with psychosomatic symptoms). Yet, he was able to compose some of the most entertaining and popular operas ever heard.

Rossini's music is famous for its vocal embellishments, driving bass lines, incredible speeds and spontaneity. Rossini was a prolific opera composer until 1829, when at the age of 37 he suddenly decided to stop composing operas. He proceeded for the rest of his life to compose small, intimate compositions.

Rossini was a superstitious person and died on Friday the 13th, 1868 in Paris, France. Rossini left a legacy of operas which are among the most popular, loved and performed at opera houses around the world.
