Rossiniâ s popularity in Italy in the early 1820s was certainly not echoed in France, where he was regarded as an ill-bred parvenu, whose cheap popularity was an insult to a great musical tradition.â Stendhal, always an obstinate individualist, was the first of his contemporaries to recognize the genius of this important Italian composer. Details of Rossiniâ s early life are followed by penetrating discussions of the operas, libretti, personalities of the period, and Rossiniâ s own character. Besides being a fascinating account of the Italian composerâ s most creative years, and of contemporary musical events and opinions this work is one of the finest items in the Stendhalian literary canon. Richard Coeâ s elegant revised translation and careful annotations do full justice to the incandescent strength of Stendhalâ s prose style.
