To that end, items run the gamut from general music history reference works to specific studies, including Rossini staples (such as Stendhal, Radiciotti, and Weinstock) and the most recent investigations that seek to re-evaluate the composer and his contributions. Contents range from sources published in the early decades of the nineteenth century to works currently in progress. General subject areas include Rossinis biography and iconography- historical and analytical studies of his operatic and non-operatic compositions- his personal and professional associations- the artistic milieu and venues in which he worked- and the reassessment of his role in the development of nineteenth-century music.
