The first English-language biography of Vincenzo Bellini in more than 25 years. Carefully sorting through fact, legend and even spurious documentation, John Rosselli reassesses Bellini's personality, his relationships, and his short but dazzling career in Naples, Milan, and Paris. What emerges is a portrait of an otherwise normal young man with uncommon musical gifts. 19 photos.
