Il barbiere di Siviglia (The Barber of Seville) (Critical Commentary)
Rossini Il barbiere di Siviglia (The Barber of Seville) Critical Commentary
Bärenreiter’s publication of a new volume of the ”Works of Gioachino Rossini”, in collaboration with the Center for Italian Opera Studies at the University of Chicago, makes available an edition of the opera “Il barbiere di Siviglia” which meets modern demands.
The editors have recently identified numerous carelessly edited places in the last critical edition by referring to additional sources. The greatest changes relate to the overture; for the new edition, no fewer than twenty different manuscripts have been consulted.
A detailed appendix containing alternative vocal parts, advice on ornamentation and compositions by Rossini significant in the performance history of the opera complete the volume. A 420-page Critical Commentary is published separately. With this, a critical edition is now available to interpreters, enabling them to perform Rossini‘s “Barber of Seville” with the greatest possible confidence in the accuracy of the musical material.
The performance material is available on hire (BA10506-72).
- Full score (BA10506), critical report (BA10506-40) & vocal score (BA10506-92) available for sale.
