Summary

Il signor Tambourossini - caricature of Rossini's musical style.
Combining the composer's name with tambour, (French for "drum") this lithograph by the French artist Paul Delaroche makes clear Rossini's European reputation as a creator of noise, with trumpet and drum accompanied by a magpie (La gazza ladra), an oriental type (Otello or maybe Il turco in Italia), and King Midas (with his ass's ears), literally trampling on sheet-music and violins, while Apollo (the god of music) makes his escape in the background[1]
