"Il signor Tambourossini, ou la nouvelle mélodie" (1821). Combining the composer's name with tambour (French for "drum"), this lithograph by the French artist Paul Delaroche makes clear the early Rossini's European reputation as a creator of noise, including a trumpet and drum accompanied by a magpie, several references to his early operas,[n 34] and showing him and King Midas literally trampling on sheet-music and violins, while Apollo (the god of music) makes his escape in the background.[148] (Source: Wikimedia)
