Tune of the Day: E lucevan le stelle
from Puccini's “Tosca”, transcribed for flute and piano
This famous romanza is taken from the third act of Giacomo Puccini's opera Tosca, which premiered in Rome in 1900. It is sung by the character of Mario Cavaradossi, a painter in love with the singer Tosca, while he waits for his execution. The Italian title “E lucevan le stelle” means “And the stars were shining”.
