Vincenzo Bellini
(1801 - 1835)



"Two lines only, o my dear friend, to give you word about my health, which is at the breaking point from the great fatigue that I am experiencing because of having to compose the opera in a short time, and whose fault is that? that of my usual and original poet, the God of Sloth!"

Vincenzo Bellini

Operatic composer with a gift for creating vocal melody at once pure in style and sensuous in expression.
