Tune of the Day: Di Provenza il mar, il suol

from Verdi's opera “La traviata”, arranged for flute and piano

This beautiful baritone aria is taken from Act II of Giuseppe Verdi's famous opera La traviata.

In this aria Alfredo's father, Germont, reminds his son of his home and family in Provence. Germont had convinced Violetta to leave Alfredo because of her bad reputation, so now he tries to comfort his son by reminding him of “the sea and the soil of Provence”.
