A miniature composition for piano. Rossini was by now 16 years into the `Great Renunciation` - his astonishing abandonment of opera after `Guillaume Tell` in 1830. He had moved from Paris to Bologna in 1835, although by 1851, when he executed this brief composition on an album page, he was primarily based in Florence.
