Gioachino Rossini

Gioachino Rossini (1792-1868) - an Italian classical composer. Gioachino Rossini is one of the greatest opera composers for all time.
Stendhal wrote about Tancredi in 'A Life of Rossini': "high amongst the composer's masterworks," and "a genuine thunderbolt out of a clear, blue sky for the Italian lyric theatre".
The famous overtures to "Guillaume Tell" and "La gazza ladra" (The Thieving Magpie, 1817) were used in a great film "A Clockwork Orange", directed by Stanley Kubrick.
