Five Duos (Rossini), No. 3 Adagio non troppo (cello duo)
Title: Five Duos, No. 3 Adagio non troppo
Composer: Gioachino Rossini, arr. David Gable
Instrumentation: Two Cellos
Printout: 2 pages
Note: Of all the duets in this set, this aria-like adagio gives the clearest indication of Rossini’s nascent operatic genius. It is short but remarkably expressive and nuanced for a composer barely into his teens, and it sounds beautiful played on two cellos.
