Well, I haven’t done a Wednesday Music post in ages, and it isn’t even Wednesday anyway, but I wanted to share with you an amazing arrangement I found on YouTube of the soprano aria “O mio babbino caro” from Puccini’s opera Gianni Schicchi. If you don’t like singing, never fear—a violin plays the main vocal part. (And if you do like singing, may I recommend this excellent recording by Kiri Te Kanawa, one of my favorite opera singers.)
Or click here to see on YouTube.
I’ve played this on my violin, but somehow it never has sounded as good as this version does… Oh, well. Perhaps I need to practice more. 😉
