Rossini’s Overture to “The Barber of Seville” is one of the most loved and best recognized works in the classical/opera repertoire, thanks in part to its use in countless movies, commercials, and of course, a Bugs Bunny cartoon (“Let me cut your top/Let me shave your mop…”. Renowned conductor Kent Nagano leads a stellar assemblage of chamber musicians in a spirited rendition of Rossini’s masterwork.

Gioachino Rossini – Rossini – The Italian Girl in Algiers Overture (performed by US Army Band)

Gioachino Antonio Rossini (Italian: [d??oa?ki?no an?t??njo ros?si?ni]; Giovacchino Antonio Rossini in the baptismal certificate; 29 February 1792 — 13 November 1868) was an Italian composer who wrote 39 operas as well as sacred music, chamber music, songs, and some instrumental and piano pieces. His best-known operas include the Italian comedies Il barbiere di Siviglia (The Barber of Seville) and La Cenerentola and the French-language epics Moïse et Pharaon and Guillaume Tell. A tendency for inspired, song-like melodies is evident throughout his scores, which led to the nickname “The Italian Mozart”. Until his retirement in 1829, Rossini had been the most popular opera composer in history.
