And what was most telling was the fact that he referred to it not by the opening words of the cabaletta, but by those of the cantabile, for that was precisely the difference between the opera seria of Rossini's generation and the romantic melodramma of Bellini's. The great music now was the slow music, a music rarefied into fantastic melodie lunghe, lunghe, lunghe (“long, long, long melodies,” as an admiring Verdi called them),26 for composing which Bellini had an unparalleled gift.
