  • The Barber of Seville Overture Wood Wind Octet


    Gioacchino Rossini


    The Barber of Seville Overture


    Wood Wind Octet(Flute, Oboe, 3Clarinets in Bb, Alto Saxophone, Tenor Saxophone, Baritone Saxophone instead of Oboe:Flute, Eb Clarinet,  Bb Clarinet or Soprano Saxophone, instead of Baritone Saxophone : Contrabass)

    Early romantic composer Rossini was a popular opera composer not only in Italy but also in Europe at that time.


    Although he wrote 40 operas, he was very quick writing, but this overture was not in time for the opening of the first day (there is also a theory that the score was lost). He used the opera's overture, "Erisabetta, a Queen in England" as it is. It was this Overture that was staged with such circumstances, but today it has become established as the Overture of "The Barber of Sevilia”.


    In this woodwind octet version, a new termination has been added to shorten and play. You can play in a short version of less than 5 minutes by cutting with Coda symbols on the score.
