PINSUTI spent a large part of his life in this country, though it was in his native Italy that his biggest works were produced.
For many years he was Professor of Singing at the Royal Academy of Music, and had a share in training such distinguished artists as Grisi, Patti, Mario, and many others. He was a prolific composer, and published close on 250 songs, many part-songs and choruses, as well as some pianoforte music. Many of these enjoyed a tremendous vogue in the latter part of last century, and one or two are still popular. But in Italy he won more important successes with three operas and special festival music for national occasions. Ho was created a Knight of the Italian Kingdom in 1878.

ROSSINI, happily remembered as the most modest and good-humoured musician who ever lived, holds his place on the operatic stage to-day solely by The Barber of Seville, in spite of its age one of the best comic operas which the world possesses. His serious work, William Tell , is no less worthy of affectionate regard, but except for the Overture it has apparently disappeared from the present-day theatre. The Overture is, however, evergreen, and bids fair to remain so. It begins, as listeners will remember, with a fine, tuneful section for the violoncellos in four parts, popular with violoncello players and with list?ners alike. The section which follows describes a great storm among the hills ; calm succeeds, and a quiet pastoral scene, and there is a stirring march, these combining to make the Overture picturesque and graphic in a way that the Overtures for the older Italian operas did not by any means always achieve.
