Description

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-Saëns and Satie.

This selection of highlights from a 14-volume compilation of Rossini's piano works includes Mon Prélude Hygiènique du Matin, Ouf! Les Petits Pois (Oh! Those Little Peas), and Un Rêve.

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.
