The dramma serio was written during Rossini’s miraculous 21st year (1813), when he produced, in total, four operas. The other three (the comedies, Il signor Bruschino and L’italiana in Algeri plus the tragedy Tancredi) indicate not only the fertility of his inventive powers but the staggering quality of his youthful composition. Rossini fans will recognise the overture to Aureliano, recycled in three other scores, most notably Il barbiere di Siviglia!
