Rossini retired early from active musical life, but he enjoyed more renown in his splendid retirement than others in the midst of their careers. He was surrounded by base flattery, but he remained untouched by it, knowing what it was worth, and he dominated his usual entourage from the heights of a superior intelligence that he did not deign to reveal to just anybody. His operas, apart from Le Barbier, Guillaume Tell and a few performances of Moïse, belonged to the past. And still the Parisian public made him into a cult figure.
