Falstaff in Full Score
Falstaff in Full Score
Paperback      ISBN: 0486240177

The plays of Shakespeare inspired Verdi's deepest resources. Macbeth (1847) was one of the composer's earliest operatic-dramatic triumphs and Otello (1887) was among his latest. At the end of his life Verdi astonished a public accustomed to his tragic fervor with Falstaff, a gem of pure comedy.
Verdi's last great work premiered in the composer's 80th year. This reproduction of the complete and unabridged score brings the final proof of the maestro's universality to the many students, musicians, and opera lovers who would see for themselves the summation of Verdi's brilliant orchestral and compositional powers. Ricordi was Verdi's original publisher; this reprint of his edition contains the standard, definitive score and includes English translations of the original front matter. Falstaff benefits from Verdi's understanding of Wagner and other operatic innovators. Nevertheless, between its concise but forceful orchestration and its copious melodic invention, it remains singularly Verdian. Its wit astonishes as much today as it did in 1893.

Idomeneo in Full Score
Idomeneo in Full Score
Paperback      ISBN: 0486271080

In the summer of 1780, Mozart received a commission from Munich to write an opera seria -- a form of opera that catered to eighteenth-century tastes for stories with classical and mythological subjects and for musical scores that provided ample opportunities for bravura singing. Idomeneo, first performed at the Court Opera in Munich early in 1781, triumphantly reveals the young composer at the summit of his powers. Rather than the stereotypical score that was often little more than a thinly contrived excuse for exhibitionistic singing, Mozart's music was rich in dramatic force and heroic emotion, with a new emphasis on choral singing and exceptionally full and elaborate scoring -- qualities amply demonstrated in this authoritative full-score edition of the opera.
High drama asserts itself in the scene most crucial to the plot: caught in a storm at sea, King Idomeaeus of Crete has promised Neptune that if spared from imminent shipwreck he will sacrifice the first person he sees upon reaching land. As he touches shore, the first person the king sees is his son, Idamantes. The exciting drama that follows, brought to life by Mozart's masterly score, will delight opera lovers, singers, musicians, and music students. Idomeneo is reprinted here from the authoritative full-score edition published by Breitkopf & H rtel.

La Traviata in Full Score
La Traviata in Full Score
Paperback      ISBN: 0486263215

One of Verdi's most popular opera, La Traviata is based on La Dame aux Cam lias (Camille), the novel and play by Alexandre Dumas, fils that enthralled Parisian audiences of the 1850s with a stirring portrayal of a beautiful courtesan redeemed by love. With his librettist, Francesco Maria Piave, Verdi transformed the Dumas story of a passionate, ultimately poignant love affair within the intoxicating demimonde of Paris in the mid-1800s to an exciting, deeply moving musical drama.
La Traviata fortunately survived its dismal first production in Venice in 1853 to become a worldwide favorite, treasured by musical artists and audiences alike for the lyric beauty of its arias and ensembles, and for the dramatic force and finesse of its orchestral scoring. This full-score edition, designed to provide a lifetime of study and enjoyment, is reproduced from the authoritative edition prepared for G. Ricordi of Milan. It will afford opera lovers a rare opportunity to study intimately Verdi's genius for operatic composition in the early years of its greatest flowering.
