Un di felice, eterea, from La Traviata (violin cello duo)
Title: Un di felice, eterea, from the opera La Traviata
Composer: Giuseppe Verdi, arr. David Gable
Instrumentation: Violin and Cello
Printout: 4 pages
Note: Un di, felice is one of the most beautiful of all operatic duets. In it, Alfredo sings first of his concern for Violetta’s health, then of his love for her. Violetta, in turn, rebuffs Alfredo, then begins to soften to his sincerity. It is preceded and followed by the music of the equally famous Waltz. Un di felice sounds beautiful when played on strings.
Un di felice and its companion waltz are available together in the Bargain Bundle Waltz and Love Duet, from La Traviata (violin cello duo).
