Bellini spent 1827 to 1833 mostly in Milan, never holding any official position within an opera company and living solely from the income produced from his compositions, for which he was able to ask higher than usual fees. I Capuleti e i Montecchi, La sonnambula, and Norma, along with a revival and a setback. Filippo Cicconetti, in his 1859 biography, gives an account of Bellini's working methods, explaining how he set texts to music always with the words in front of him in order to see how inspired to compose he might become. It took until late July for I Capuleti e i Montecchi to be given its London premiere and his contract was then over, after which he left for Paris by about mid-August. "[101] Not unexpectedly, a further "cannonade" (says Weinstock) appeared from Romani, published this time in L'Eco on 12 April 1833 with both an editor's preface, decrying the poor taste displayed by both sides, and a brief final response from Marinetti.[102]. [37], After its Milanese debut, the opera received very successful performances in Vienna in February 1828 and also in Naples three months later. But rehearsals did not progress without some difficulties, as both Weinstock and Galatopoulos recount: it appears that Bellini found Rubini, while singing beautifully, to be lacking expressiveness: he was urged to "throw yourself with all your soul into the character you are representing" and to use [your] body, "to accompany your singing with gestures", as well as to act with [your] voice. His brief two-movement Oboe Concerto in E-flat from 1823 also survives and has been recorded by no less than the Berlin Philharmonic.

"[120] In his letter, he continues by providing a synopsis, indicating that his favourite singers—Giulia Grisi, Rubini, Tamburini, and Lablache—would be available for the principal roles, and that he would begin to write the music by 15 April if he has received the verses. About 50 years later, Florimo gave an account of the meeting of the two men: "Carlo Conti [one of Bellini's tutors] said to Bellini and me, "Go and hear Donizetti's La zingara, for which my admiration increases at every performance." Quickly, Bellini entered the fashionable world of the Parisian salon, most importantly that run by the Italian exile Princess Belgiojoso whom he had met in Milan and who "was by far the most overtly political of the salonnières". 164–165, Bellini to Vincenzo Ferlito, 11 April 1834, in Weinstock 1971, p. 161, Bellini to Florimo, 26 May 1834, in Weinstock 1971, pp. Many years later, in 1898, Giuseppe Verdi "praised the broad curves of Bellini's melody: 'there are extremely long melodies as no-one else had ever made before'."[4]. 2 Puritani, I. Bellini, Vincenzo Italian 14 18 10 54. However, the title Bianca e Fernando had to be changed, because Ferdinando was the name of the heir to the throne, and no form of it could be used on a royal stage. A large amount of what is known about Bellini's life and his activities comes from surviving letters—except for a short period—which were written over his lifetime to his friend Francesco Florimo, whom he had met as a fellow student in Naples and with whom he maintained a lifelong friendship. [34] It appears that Bellini's exhortations bore fruit, based on his own account of the audience's reactions to the first performance,[35] as well as the reaction of the Gazzetta privilegiata di Milano of 2 December which noted that this opera "introduced us to Rubini's dual personality as a singer and actor". By Sunday, December 2, when the season ended, it had been sung to fifteen full houses". Only nine months later, Bellini died in Puteaux, France at the age of 33. Giovanni Pacini, another Catanese composer, was still in Milan in late June after the well-received premiere on 10 June of his opera Il Talismano at La Scala, where it went on to receive a total of 16 performances. Vincenzo Bellini 1801. november 3-án született a szicíliai Cataniában, egy nappal később keresztelték meg.Mivel a későbbiekben korának egyik legjelentősebb zeneszerzője lett, ugyanakkor Szicília művészeti életének legjelesebb képviselője, szülővárosában rengeteg legenda keringett róla, így például születésének körülményeiről is. Vincenzo Salvatore Carmelo Francesco Bellini (Italian: [vinˈtʃɛntso salvaˈtoːre karˈmɛːlo franˈtʃesko belˈliːni] (); 3 November 1801 – 23 September 1835) was an Italian opera composer, who was known for his long-flowing melodic lines for which he was named "the Swan of Catania". Zaira was the opera which came into being following discussions with Barbaja in Milan in June 1828 for a second opera for La Scala. Thus, Bellini wrote back to the intermediary stating: "Tell my dear Romani that I still love him even though he is a cruel man" and he continues by wondering if Romani ever thinks about him where he, Bellini, says "whereas I do nothing but to talk about him to the entire universe". [55] Eventually, both men got down to work and finished on time, although the premiere was delayed by four days. [137] Initially, Rossini regarded burial in Père Lachaise cemetery as a short-term arrangement, not knowing where the final resting place would turn out to be. 37–38: Weinstock explains that the reason for the uncertainty over the exact date is due to a series of deaths of prominent people (including Bourbon King Ferdinand I) which caused all public entertainment to stop during periods of mourning. [117] The dress rehearsal on 20 January 1835 was attended by many people—"All of high society, all the great artists, and everyone most distinguished in Paris were in the theatre, enthusiastic. Beatrice di Tenda, with the leading role requiring a strong female character to be written for Pasta, composer and librettist met to consider a subject. ; Hector Berlioz (1803–1869). For well-off students, this would include moving to Naples. [78], After rehearsals began on 5 December, Pasta baulked at singing the Casta diva in act 1, now one of the most famous arias of the nineteenth century. 1827 – Il pirata, set in 13th C. Sicily 4. Both composer and librettist were somewhat dilatory, delaying work as much and as long as possible.

To Bellini, he appeared to be a rival,[58] and with his recent success, Pacini received offers to compose an opera for both Turin and Venice for the Carnival season. [121] The composer had prepared the way for his librettist by providing him with a scenario of thirty-nine scenes (thus compressing the original drama into manageable proportions), reducing the number of characters from nine to seven and at the same time, giving them names of a more Italianate, singable quality.[122]. For Rubini, "it marked the defining performance for the tenor",[31] and the newspaper reviews which followed all agreed with the composer's own assessment. "The subject has been changed, and we'll write Beatrice di Tenda [after the play of the same name by Carlo Tedaldi-Fores.] Firstly, an outbreak of cholera had occurred in Austria in July, and concern about its spread to Italy was real, to the point that, by late September, Bellini was writing to Florimo: "I am composing the opera without any real zeal because I am almost certain that the cholera will arrive in time to close the theatres; but as soon it threatens to come near, I'll leave Milan. I had a hard time persuading Romani, but persuade him I did, and with good reasons. During that time he remained busy, spending some time with Turina (who was ill for part of it), visiting the conservatory and meeting with many of the students and his old teacher, Zingarelli (to whom he had dedicated Norma),[84] and attending a performance of Capuleti at the San Carlo with Turina and Florimo on 5 February in the presence of King Ferdinand II. Bellini… In it, the aggrieved librettist sums up Bellini's tastes in Romantic drama as follows: In writing the libretto for Zaira, Romani expressed his position in relation to Voltaire's tragedy by noting in the preface to the libretto: Bellini was a notorious womanizer as evidenced in his letters to Francesco Florimo. Continuing his letter to Florimo, he states: From that statement of March 1834, it does not appear that animosity still existed on the composer's part. "[92] From Bergamo, he wrote to Romani, excited to tell him that: After the successful production in Bergamo, which was favourably reviewed by the same writer from the Gazzetta privilegiata di Milano who was not enthusiastic about the original Milan production, Bellini spent a few days with Turina, and then, by mid-September, had returned to Milan anxious to meet Romani to decide on the subject for the following February's opera for La Fenice for which a contract had become official. [56], After the poor response in Parma to Zaira, Bellini stayed with Ferdinando and Giuditta Turina's family for a short period in May/June and then returned to Milan by the end of June and discovered that his grandfather, then 85, had died in Catania.

The Divine Comedy(Italian: Divina Commedia [diˈvina komˈmɛdja]) is a long narrative poem by Dante Alighieri, begun c. 1308 and completed in 1320, a year before his death in 1321.It is widely considered to be the preeminent work in Italian literature and one of the greatest works of world literature. However, the fourth note—on 22 September—is far more pessimistic; it reported that it was the thirteenth day of the illness and that Bellini had "passed a very restless night". The librettist was critical of his own work: "the style should have been more careful, and that here and there, certain repetitions of phrases and concepts should have been edited out". Libretto by Domenico Gilardoni ; First performance at Naples, Teatro San Carlo on 30 May 1826 ; Il pirata - 2 acts - Italian Berlioz's attempts to carve out an operatic career for himself were thwarted by an unimaginative musical establishment. For Bellini, his opera "was not unworthy of her sisters".[99]. Romani's libretto for La sonnambula was based on a ballet-pantomime by Eugène Scribe and Jean-Pierre Aumer called La somnambule, ou L'arrivée d'un nouveau seigneur. At the premiere of I Capuleti e i Montecchi on 11 March 1830 success for Bellini returned. 22 items ranked. No contract for another opera in sight, except for the possibility of working with the Teatro La Fenice in Venice. Weinstock describes the premiere as "an unclouded and immediate success"[61] but it was only able to be performed eight times before the La Fenice season closed on 21 March. As their affair became obvious to her parents, they were forbidden to see each other. [105] Little is known about Romani's reply, but reply he did, as indicated in Bellini's letter to Florimo in October followed by a very friendly one on 7 October 1834 to the librettist (who had been engaged in Turin) and in which he states: "It seemed impossible to exist without you", closing with "Write for Turin or for wherever, write for me alone: only for me, for your Bellini".[106]. Having recovered from his illness by the summer, Bellini went to stay near Lake Como. [82], In all, Norma was given 39 performances in its first season at La Scala, and reports from elsewhere, especially those from Bergamo when performances were given there in late 1832, suggested that it was becoming more and more popular. This was successfully achieved in May 1819 with unanimous agreement for a four-year pension to allow him to study at the Real Collegio di Musica di San Sebastiano in Naples. The one significant relationship which Bellini had after 1828 was the five-year relationship with Giuditta Turina, a young married woman with whom he began a passionate affair when both were in Genoa in April 1828 for the production of Bianca e Fernando. After 1816, Bellini began living with his grandfather, from whom he received his first music lessons. On account of such works as Norma and I puritani, Bellini is recognised as one of the leading composers of the bel canto style of opera. Gaul. Page 1 of 1. [2] Bellini's biographer Herbert Weinstock regards some of these accounts as no more than myths, not being supported from other, more reliable sources. February 1828, in Galatopoulos 2002, p. 73, Bellini to Florimo, 10 April 1828, in Galatopoulos 2002, p. 95, Bellini to Raina, in Cambi (ed.) Wikimedia Commons has media related to Operas by Bellini. Bellini was determined to obtain the parents' permission for them to marry, and some writers regard this as the propelling reason for his writing his first opera. With links to: the scene itself (with movie, libretto and more information), the roles, the composer and the opera. After leaving Venice on 26 March, before the barrage of letter-writing began, it is known that Bellini spent some time with Mrs. Turina in Milan and, leaving many of his personal possessions with her, appears to have planned to return there by August since he did not give up his rooms in the contrade dei Re Monasteri. [141] Once Bellini left Naples for Milan, the two men seldom saw one another; their last meeting was in Naples in late 1832, when Bellini was there with Giuditta Turina, before the pair departed for Milan via Florence. Bellini then became preoccupied with staging a revival of his Il pirata during the summer season at the Teatro Canobbiana because La Scala was closed for repairs. Thus, during March, Bellini did nothing, but did attend the final performance of Puritani on 31st. [141] Ultimately, he resisted any long-term emotional commitment, and never married. Although Pepoli had yet to write for the opera house, he made acquaintance with Bellini at one of the salons both attended. Bellini to Florimo, 4 September 1834, in Weinstock 1971, p. 158, Bellini to Florimo, 11 March 1834, in Weinstock 1971, p. 159, Bellini to Florimo, 11 March 1834, in Weinstock 1971, p. 163, Bellini to Vincenzo Ferlito, [day, month unknown, 1835 after, Letters from Bellini to Florimo, in Weinstock, pp. Lists that rank the greatest works, composers, and musicians by instrument. The Adalgisa of Anna Del Serre and the Pollione of Alberico Curioni were mediocre; Bellini feared for how Beatrice would turn out. Solemn fiasco!" But then he explains that most of the second act was very effective. With its pastoral setting and story, La sonnambula was to become another triumphant success during Bellini's five years in Milan. But by then—with the efforts to build his career and with time and distance between him and Maddalena—his feelings had changed and, using Florimo to communicate to the family, he rejected the offer, expressing the feeling that he would be unable to support her financially. His name is listed as an attendee in the Morning Chronicle of 29 April at a performance of Rossini's La cenerentola, along with those of Maria Malibran, Felix Mendelssohn, Nicolo Paganini, as well as Pasta, Rubini, and other visiting Italian singers. [39] Romani wrote to Florimo in Naples and told him that he had taken on the re-construction of the libretto, with the result that "out of the whole of Bianca, the only pieces entirely unchanged are the big duet and the romanza; everything else is altered, and about half of it is new",[40] Bellini then re-arranged the music to suit the singers' voices, now knowing that the Bianca was to be Adelaide Tosi and the Fernando to be Giovanni David. [117], However, during the time during which he was composing Puritani, Bellini recounted the details of another bout of what he describes as "gastric fever"[118] and which Weinstock describes as "that brief indisposition, which had been recurring almost every year at the onset of warm weather. During the final preparations in 1834 for the staging of Puritani and up to its delay into 1835, Bellini had concluded an agreement with Naples to present three operas there—including the re-writing of parts of the music for Malibran—beginning in the following January. But this issue had caused complications in his relationship with Barbaja, who controlled both theatres, and when he visited Milan in June, he offered Bellini the opportunity to choose between Naples and Milan as the venue for his next opera. 80–81. [116] In a series of letters to Florimo throughoutthe year, he wrote of Rossini's increasing support, even love: "I hear that he speaks well of me" (4 September 1834); "... if I have Rossini's protection, I'll be situated very well" (4 November); "The most beautiful is that Rossini loves me very, very, very much" (18 November); and "... my very dear Rossini who now loves me as a son" (21 January 1835, following the dress rehearsal). The Conservatorio di San Sebastiano (as it had been named when the original Real Collegio di Musica, established in 1806 and then renamed as such in 1808) had moved to more spacious facilities close to the church of Gesù Novo and the building formerly occupied by the nuns of San Sabastiano, was run by the government and there, students, who wore a semi-military uniform, were obliged to live under a tight daily regimen of classes in principal subjects, in singing and instrumental coaching, plus basic education. Finally, when asked what it was that he was seeking, Bellini replied: "I want a thought that will be at one and the same time a prayer, an imprecation, a warning, a delirium ...". "[114] However, in January 1834, he had signed a contract to write a new opera for the Théâtre-Italien which would be presented at the end of the year. On 2 April, this provoked a response from Romani himself, presenting his case against Bellini based largely on the composer's inability to decide on a subject, as well as justifying all the work which he did after arriving in Venice, only to find his melodramma "touched up in a thousand ways", in order to make it acceptable to "the Milords of the Thames [who] await him", a sarcastic reference to planned trip to London. [8], One critic, Stellios Galatopoulos, deliberates the "facts" presented in the précis, but also provides a reliable source for these compositions, Galatopoulos expresses some skepticism regarding the young Bellini's child prodigy status.[11]. To that list, we can add Bellini’s Norma, ranked #42, with 491 performances over 5 seasons.Bel canto fans consider Norma to be Bellini’s masterpiece. When planning the subject of his next opera after La Scala's Il pirata, Bellini had been invited to write an opera for Parma's inauguration of the new Teatro Ducale in early 1829.

In August, I shall go to Bergamo for the production of my Norma with Pasta. View the list of Verdi operas. [52] Another writer attributes it to Parma's traditional love of and favouritism towards the music of Rossini,[50] while yet another notes that a combination of the composer being constantly seen in cafes around the city (when it was assumed that he should have been composing) and the fact that Romani had included a long explanation of the difficulties of adapting Voltaire in the printed libretto provided to all operagoers. Please Subscribe to our New channel @PAINTED. Through an intermediary, Bordesi (or Bordese), a mutual friend of both men, Romani initially expressed interest in re-establishing friendly relations with Bellini. [65], Bellini then experienced the re-occurrence of an illness which had emerged in Venice due to pressure of work and the bad weather, but which consistently recurred after each opera and which would eventually cause his death. The aspiring librettist laid a complaint against Bellini in a report to Parma's Grand Chamberlain in December 1828 (which was ignored). With [this letter] receive my gratitude more than ever ..."[48] Others wrote equally enthusiastic reports, with abundant praise being given to the singers as well. [132] Also, Heine's literary portrait of Bellini, which became part of his unfinished novel Florentinische Nächte (Florentine Nights) published in 1837, emphasized the less-appealing aspects of the composer's personality, summing up a description of him as "a sigh in dancing pumps". In 1999, the Italian music publisher Casa Ricordi, in collaboration with the Teatro Massimo Bellini in Catania, embarked on a project to publish critical editions of the complete works of Bellini.[156]. The general impression given by reports in the press was that, overall, the music was weak, although some numbers and the trio were liked. 202–204, Dr. Dalmas' post-mortem report, supported by quotations from a report made in 1969 by Doctor Victor de Sabata, in Weinstock 1971, pp. Both I Capuleti ed i Montecchi at La Fenice in 1830 and La sonnambula in Milan in 1831 reached new triumphal heights, although initially Norma, given at La Scala in 1831 did not fare as well until later performances elsewhere.
