Dayton Philharmonic: Reflections and Images


nnovation in the field of music leads to deeper, ever more beautiful representations of life through music. The Reflections and Images program highlights such innovations, from the progression of the operatic form to the use of new harmonies. 

Gioachino Rossini, often referred to as the King of Comic Opera, started his operatic journey early, composing as a child and receiving his first operatic commission at 15. In fact, by the time he was 31 years old, this prolific composer had written 34 operas! In the late 1700s to early 1800s, an opera performance was accompanied by keyboard. In Rossini’s operas, he began to replace the keyboard accompaniment with orchestration. His operas also laid new foundations for the art form as he “fleshed out” his characters, making them more human so that the audience could identify with them. He added drama to his performances at no expense to the singing.
