ROSSINI The Barber of Seville overture | Nicolas BALDEYROU and friends

Nicolas BALDEYROU
Dear Friends, I hope you’re well ! Today’s video was composed by a composer like no other, who can instantly bring so much joy and hope, the one and only Gioachino Rossini ! Composed in 1816 and premiered in Rome, The Barber of Seville by Gioacchino Rossini established several records:it was composed in only two weeks, by a 24-year old who had already written 16 operas! The music flows forth with breathtaking limpidity. Serenades, duets and ensembles brighten the comedy with vocal flourishes and verbal antics. And yet, the genius of Rossini resides in mastering the physical crescendo, designed to increase tension until the audience is boiling with impatience and ready to explode. The overture immediately offers a surprise: a tutti warns the audience that the show has started and then a delightful melody takes over, is repeated and swells to the breaking point...Laughter and rhythms burst forth and overflow. All the insolence of Beaumarchais’s play is captured in the madcap universe created by Rossini. In this arrangement, I used all my set of period of the early XIXth century, 2 clarinets in A, 2 clarinets in C, one basset clarinet and one basset horn and of course a beautiful natural horn 🔥 I would like to thank all my super nice and talented friends bringing their period instruments at home to complete the piece: Alexis Kossenko, Gabriel Pidoux, David Douçot d’Ortega, Yann Dubost, Javier Rossetto and Antoine Ganaye 🙏🏼😍✨ I hope you'll like it and don't hesitate to give me ideas 😁 Take care and stay safe! ❤️ #rossini #barberofseville #periodinstruments #clarinet
