Title: Soldiers’ Chorus (Part II – “Squilli, ercheggi”), from the opera Il Trovatore
Composer: Giuseppe Verdi, arr. David Gable
Instrumentation: Violin and Cello
Printout: 4 pages
Note: The famous Soldier’s Chorus from Il Trovatore is split by a recitative that, while essential to the plot, is musically less interesting that the rest of the scene. In this, the second choral section, the soldiers celebrate the stirring sound of trumpets.
The first section of the Soldiers’ Chorus, ‘Or co’ dadi”, is also available in an arrangement for violin and cello. Click here.
