leap-year birthday anniversary

Rossini's anniversary celebration day by his native town of Pesaro
Today, February 29, was the leap-year birthday anniversary
of Italian composer Gioacchino Rossini who was born into a
family of musicians on the Adriatic coastal town of Pesaro
220 years ago. The so-called 'Italian Mozart' wrote 39 operas
and a legion of songs, chamber music and piano pieces in
his bright-eyed, song-like style. His best-known opera,
'The Barber of Seville' is constantly performed all around
the world ever since its premiere in Rome in 1816!
 Buon Compleanno Rossini.
