Various: Italian Classics for violin and piano | UE38027
Favourite Italian melodies - David Brooker’s “Italian Classics” for violin and piano contains intermediate arrangements of great Italian hits from the classics and folk music.
Italian culture infects many art forms and perhaps none more so than music. In this album, David Brooker has arranged, for violin and piano, eleven well-known pieces that simply shout “ITALY” at you! “Italian Classics” includes the unforgettable “O Sole Mio”, “La Donna è Mobile”, “Funiculi, Funicula” and Verdi’s “Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves”.
For intermediate players, “Italian Classics” should complement your repertoire collection just as a glass of Soave accompanies Pasta alla Carbonara. And for antipasto, try Brooker’s “Classical Favourites from Russia” for two violins.
