Gioacchino Rossini: Sins Of Old Age - Piano Selections From "P闂備浇鍋愰崢褍鐣烽幎娆撴⒑閼测晛甯剁€ De Vieillesse"
In 1855 Gioacchino Rossini began to compose again, after two decades of seclusion from the age of 37. This time in the form of chamber works, performed privately in his Paris salon for the cream of society. These works were not published until after the composer's death, and have since come to be known as Sins of Old Age . A graceful combination of sophistication and naivety, the 150 vocal and solo piano pieces from this period influenced later composers such as Saint-Sa婵犵數绋婚柟瑙勬 and Satie. This selection of highlights from a 14-volume compilation of Rossini 's piano works includes Mon Pr闂備浇鍋愰崢褍鐣风粻鍒 Hygi闂備胶绮銊╃嵁娑旂晞ue du Matin, Ouf! Les Petits Pois (Oh! Those Little Peas) , and Un R闂傚倷鐒︾€ . Fun to learn and satisfying to perform, these pieces are suitable for intermediate to advanced pianists. Each piece was selected by classical pianist Sara Davis Buechner, who offers an informative Introduction.
