Song of the week: Des Sennen Abschied (R. Schumann) - S. Daneman, J. Drake
 
Herdsmen with Cows - Aelbert Cuyp

The opera Guillaume Tell by Gioachino Rossini, premiered in 1829, is the most famous musical version of Wilhelm Tell, the drama published by Friedrich von Schiller in 1804. Although the opera is hardly performed, the piece that opens it has become independent and is one of the most popular in the classical repertoire; everybody recognizes that brilliant music even if they cannot identify it.
