Gioachino Antonio Rossini (February 29, 1792 - November 13, 1868) was an Italian composer who wrote 39 operas as well as sacred music, chamber music, songs, and some instrumental and piano pieces. His best known operatic works include ''Il barbiere di Siviglia'' (''The Barber of Seville''), ''La Cenerentola'', ''La gazza ladra'' (''The Thieving Magpie'') and ''Guillaume Tell'' (''William Tell''). A tendency for inspired, song-like melodies is evident throughout his scores, which led to the nickname "The Italian Mozart." Until his retirement in 1829, Rossini had been the most popular opera composer in history.
