Gioacchino Rossini: La Boutique Fantasque - Medley Two (Parts)

Books | String Quartet

Publisher: Broadbent and Dunn
Composer: Gioachino Rossini
Format: Sheet Music | Parts

Rossini retired from a highly successful and lucrative career as an Opera composer before he was 40 years of age, and although he lived almost another 40 years he wrote very little more music except for some short Piano pieces of a dance-like nature that he called Sins of Old Age.

In 1919 Respighi gathered many of these pieces together and orchestrated them for the ever-popular ballet La Boutique Fantasque. This String Quartet is the second of two medleys arranged by Carlo Martelli that includes music from the ballet.
