Rossini concert

Conductor: Alessandro De Marchi
Mezzo-soprano: Kristina Stanek
Tenor: Oleksiy Palchykov
Baritone: Kartal Karagedik
Philharmonisches Staatsorchester Hamburg

The overture of Rossini's Il signor Bruschino caused a minor scandal at its premiere in Venice in 1813: the two violinists were instructed to tap the candlesticks with their bows, something hitherto unheard of. The opera (a "farce", a very popular genre at the time) fell through. Apparently the unusual musical contrasts between individual numbers were too brusque after all. The opera was not performed again until many years later, when Rossini had become a famous figure in European opera. A French version was written by Jacques Offenbach, and Rossini was present at its first performance in Paris, which was a great success. "I let you do what you wanted, but I have no intention whatsoever of becoming your accomplice," was his comment. To this day, this work remains in the shadow of many great famous operas, which are also represented in this gala: Il barbiere di Siviglia, L'Italiana in Algeri, La Gazza Ladra. There is also another opera that is rather unknown today: La pietra del paragone.
