Happy birthday, Gioachino

Italian composer Gioachino Rossini was born on February 29, 1792. Although he composed music in many different genres, he is best remembered today for his many operas, which include William Tell, The Thieving MagpieCinderellaThe Barber of Seville, and Otello. Here is the overture to The Thieving Magpie, performed by the Vienna Philharmonic.
