Autograph musical manuscript from "Il Pirata".
[Milano, La Scala, 27 Oct. 1827]. - Oblong folio. 2 pp. From Act II, Scene 2; one page with the text. - After the enormous success of "Bianca e Fernando" in Naples (May 1826), Bellini was introduced to the librettist Felice Romani, who proposed the subject of the composer’s first project, "Il pirata". Its premiere, given on 17 October 1827, was "an immediate and then an increasing, success. By Sunday, December 2, when the season ended, it had been sung to fifteen full houses" (Weinstock, Bellini: His life and His Operas. New York, Knopf, 1971, pp. 40f.). - Margins somewhat spotty and browned. With an early certification of authenticity in the left margin, written by the lawyer (to the heirs of Vincenzo, his brothers Carmelo and Mario), Francesco Chiarenza, and dated Catania, June 21, 1902.
