Tune of the Day: Preludio from La traviata
by Giuseppe Verdi, arranged for solo flute
The prelude (or overture, as it is also called) to Act I of Verdi's opera La traviata is based on Violetta's famous aria from Act II, “Amami Alfredo” (“Love me, Alfredo”). Though oddly short for a prelude, it is a very deep and touching piece.
Thanks to Luis for suggesting this piece!
