Here’s an arrangement of Verdi’s ‘Brindisi’ from his opera La Traviata. It’s a great addition to any concert programme – and not too difficult either.
Brindisi is a port city on the Adriatic Sea, in southern Italy’s Apulia region. The red-stone Aragonese Castle stands on a small island at the harbor’s entrance. The tall Monumento al Marinaio d’Italia, a rudder-shaped limestone memorial to sailors, has sea and city views. Across the harbour, the Swabian Castle of Brindisi dates from the 13th century.
