Paris 1868, Rossini passes away.

His legendary 'soirées musicales' are no longer.

 

Although. More than 150 years after his death there are still soirées musicales being organised. In this recital the music by Rossini is of course central with a couple of the 'Péchés de vieillesse' for piano solo and some 'Mi lagnerò tacendo's ' for voice and piano. These shorter works frame the cantata 'Giovanna d'Arco'. The emotions of this cantata won't be only musically expressed but also with film footage by Manon De Sutter.

 

This 'soirée musicale' also gives extra attention to the Belgian connection of Rossini. Auguste de Peellaert and Edmond Michotte, two Belgian composers, belonged to his circle of friends in Paris. Auguste de Peellaert received by Rossini the authographic score of 'Requiem, à ma belle-mère'. Edmond Michotte composed 'En automobile' a briljant phantasy that makes this piece a phantastic homage to Rossini.

 

Conclusion: Rossini is very much alive.
