The Italian composer Gioachino Rossini (1792-1868) was an exceptional musical talent. He wrote at a terrific pace, achieving his first success with opera at La Scala when he was only twenty years old, and many other were to follow. At age 37 Rossini abruptly retired from composing for the opera, living the last thirty years of his life in comparative silence, producing only a handful of pieces for voices and piano.

Rossini’s Overture to ‘The Thieving Magpie’ has been arranged for flute choir into a shortened version suitable for concert performance. In three short sections the composer’s famous tunes are shared amongst all players, most prominently between flutes one and two.
