Over the course of his life, he wrote in a variety of literary genres and under a multitude of names, or anonymously.

Reissued here is the 1824 English translation of his Vie de Rossini of the same year, which was accused of being partly plagiarised from Giuseppe Carpanis Le Rossiniane, following similar claims regarding his biographies of Haydn and Mozart (which are also reissued together in translation in this series).

Best known for William Tell and The Barber of Seville, Gioachino Rossini (1792 1868) was by far the most popular opera composer of his day, adored by his public. Colourful, vigorous and forthright, Stendhals brilliant though somewhat unreliable biography offers an opinionated contemporary critique of Signor Crescendo.
