Program Notes/Il Programma
Suite Verdiana is a free transcription based on some of Verdi’s most famous operas where Di Vittorio borrows from La Forza del Destino’s Overture, La Traviata’s Prelude, Aida’s Dances and Triumphal March, Don Carlo’s bass aria “Ella giammai m’amo”, and Nabucco’s Slaves Chorus “Va Pensiero”.
