Verdi, - Giuseppe Fantasy on "La Traviata" for flute and piano (UE)
Arranged - Krakamp Emanuele; Briccialdi Giulio; Gamzou Yoel
The internationally acclaimed flautist, Emmanuel Pahud, presents favourite repertoire from famous flautists.
his edition of the Traviata Fantasy for flute and piano is based on two popular arrangements by the famous Italian flautists Emanuele Krakamp (1813 - 1883) and Giulio Briccialdi (1818 - 1881). Both were also composers and produced numerous compositions of their own as well as arrangements of famous works by their contemporaries. The latter included their fantasies on themes from Giuseppe Verdi's La Traviata. Yoel Gamzou has combined both arrangements to create the orchestral version of the Fantasy on La Traviata that is also published by Universal Edition. The present edition of the Fantasy on La Traviata for flute and piano also serves as the piano score of Yoel Gamzou's orchestral version that is published by Universal Edition. We musicians are always on the lookout for new sounds and interesting repertoire that give our instrument an unmistakable profile. The Flute Collection is my contribution to this search. After all, our imagination should be the only limit. Emmanuel Pahud (Vienna, April 2012)
