Overture: Tancredi (CB)
Tancredi is an opera in two acts by composer Gioachino Rossini and librettist Geatano Rossi, based on Voltaire�s play Tancr�de (1759). Though Rossini first composed his opera with a happy ending in mind, he eventually had the poet Luigi Lechi rework the libretto to emulate the original tragic ending by Voltaire. Rossini’s opera made its first appearance in Venice at the Teato La Fenice on 6th February 1813, after Il Signor Bruschino premiered in late January, giving the composer less than a month to have completed Tancredi. The overture, borrowed from La pietra del paragone, is a popular example of Rossini�s characteristic style, and is a regular part of the concert and recording repertoire. Arranged for Concert wind band.
