During the last decade of his life, after the 'years of silence' resulting from his long illness, Rossini wrote numerous vocal and instrumental pieces which, with his usual irony, he entitled Péchés de vieillesse. For the most part they consist of pieces intended for performance during the famous soirées held at his apartment in the Chaussée d'Antin, to which politicians, financiers, journalists, writers, and musicians strove for an invitation. Two of these albums are published in the present volume : Album français and Morceaux réservés. The works are generally for one or more.
