GIOACCHINO ROSSINI (1792-1868) Autograph Letter Signed to Andrea Nozzari in Naples, in Italian.
Paris, 15 October 1826. 1 p. in-4, address on the back. Great Rossinian tenor, Andrea Nozzari (1776-1832), created several roles in operas by Rossini. The soprano Giuditta Pasta (1798-1865) was a glory of the 1820s and 1830s, and it was for her that, for example, Bellini wrote La Sonnambula and Norma. Stendhal’s admiration: in his Life of Rossini (1824), the writer evokes Andrea Nozzari and Mrs. Pasta eulogically.
