Un di felice, eterea, from La Traviata (violin viola duo)
Title: Un di felice, eterea, from the opera La Traviata
Composer: Giuseppe Verdi, arr. David Gable
Instrumentation: Violin and Viola
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.
The violin part can be played on flute or oboe by eliminating the lower note of the final double stop.
