Product Code : Donizetti_02
Donizetti Una Furtiva Lagrima from the Opera L'elisir d'amore (The Elixir of Love) L'elisir d'amore Is a comic opera (melodramma giocoso) in two acts by the Italian composer Gaetano Donizetti. Felice Romani wrote the Italian libretto, after EugÃ¨ne Scribe's libretto for Daniel Auber's Le philtre (es) (1831). The opera premiered on 12 May 1832 at the Teatro della Canobbiana in Milan. "Una furtiva lagrima" (A furtive tear) is the romanza from act 2, scene 8 of the opera. It is sung by Nemorino (tenor voice) when he finds that the love potion he bought to win the heart of his dream lady, Adina, works. Nemorino is in love with Adina, but she is not interested in a relationship with an innocent, rustic man. To win her heart, Nemorino buys a love potion with all the money he has in his pocket. That love potion is actually a cheap red wine sold by a traveling quack doctor, but when he sees Adina weeping, he knows that she has fallen in love with him, and he is sure that the "elixir" has worked! This has been arranged by our maestro arranger Simon Kerwin Although Simon has arranged this beautiful aria as a trombone solo, anyone who purchases this from our website could use the xml file you would get to change this to a French horn solo!
In most cases, this is the arrangment being played back using the Sibelius video export facility, but in some cases this is an actual performance by groups commissioned by Undiscovered Brass to actually perform the arrangment.
