CLASSICAL OPUS no.84

Gioachino Rossini: “La gazza ladra”

ジョアキーノ・ロッシーニ – 「カサ泥棒」

 

TIME COMMITMENT: 9 minutes

The plumpish bard of lower classes painted in stark, fauvist hues of opera buffa.  The indefatigable creator of ludic songs preferred tunes that were anthemic, but also zestful and danceable, playfully evoking bygone minuets.  I added here a second version, despite the tinny recording quality.  After all, it’s conducted by maestro Toscanini.

A REFLECTION

Each of us bears the imprint

Of a friend met along the way;

In each the trace of each.

For good or evil

In wisdom or in folly

 

Primo Levi: “To My Friends”
