Un di felice, eterea, from La Traviata (cello duo)
Title: Un di felice, eterea, from the opera La Traviata
Composer: Giuseppe Verdi, arr. David Gable
Instrumentation: Two Cellos
Printout: 4 pages
Note: Un di felice is one of the most exquisite duets in the opera repertory. In this arrangement, the cello 1 part carries Alfredo’s part in the first section then transitions to Violetta’s coloratura lines in the second half. The cello 1 part has passages in tenor clef and is challenging due to its high register and delicacy.
