Giochino Rossini has composed many of the most remembered moments for the cinema

The Thieving Magpie Overture – Gioachino Rossini

First, play the song, please. Do you remember it? Of course you do! One of the best moments of Stanley’s Kubrick A Clockwork Orange was dressed by Rossini, one of the best composers of his generation. This won’t be the last time we hear Rossini. I love the way he uses the rhythm to create the melody. Of course, he has Mozart’s influences but… who hasn’t? The notes of Mr. Mozart fly beyond Rossini’s overtures.

Anyway, Rossini is the most important composer of the ‘Opera Buffa’ –we can translate it as ‘comedy opera-. Sometimes, criticism has undervalue it. Yes, it was Wagner time and everything had to be serious, mythological and someone had to die at the end of the first act but… ‘Bel Canto’ or ‘Opera Buffa’ had many good pieces to admire and enjoy.

…Another day, we will listen to some tracks of The Barber of Seville. I promise they have appeared in more films than The Ride of the Valkyries by Wagner… or maybe not, but… can an opera section written by a dog be serious? I don’t think so.

Enjoy Rossini, eat and, overall, enjoy life!
