Book review

During the last years of his life, Rossini gathered his numerous vocal and piano pieces into
fourteen unpublished albums, which he called Pèchès de vieillesse
("sins of my old age"). In 1857 he presented Musique anodine, a Prélude and
six songs, to his wife Olimpe, in gratitude for her care during his long illness. This was the
thirteenth album in the series. The first was Album italiano, a dozen pieces for one,
two, or four voices with piano. Among the best known of these pieces is "La regata
veneziana," three canzonettas for mezzo-soprano in Venetian dialect, in which the heroine
encourages her racing gondolier. Another song, "Le gittane," has never before been published
with its Italian text.

Based on the composer's own manuscripts, this critical edition restores Rossini's expressively
precise musical notation. Appendixes contain earlier versions of six songs, some with different
texts from the final versions.
