Misc. Notes These parts were prepared with love and respect for G. Spontini. There is a rather sad plaque that one can see in Maiolati Spontini, a town in the hills above Ancona, Spontini's hometown where he retired after his opera writing career was over, to do "good works" with his French wife Celeste in the Catholic tradition. It says, even if I didn't write the Barber of Seville, I did good works. Well even if he didn't write the Barber of Seville it was he, not Rossini, Auber or Meyerbeer who created Grand Opera! And if he tended to write the same opera more than once, as so many do -- he wrote four grand operas, Agnese his last being perhaps the most stupendous -- it was not due to a lack of imagination or craft but an excess of passion.
