Composer Study, May 2013

Oops! I should have posted this sooner! Here are the Ambleside Online Composer Study selection suggestions for the current term:

1.  Giuseppi Verdi: "Triumphal March" (Grand March) from Aida, "Vedi! le fosche" (Anvil Chorus) from Il Trovatore;

2.  Giuseppi Verdi: "Libiamo Ne'lieti Calici" (Brindisi) from La Traviata, "La Donne Il Mobile," from Rigoletto;

3.  Giacomo Puccini: "O Soave Fancuilla" and "Quando M'en Vo" from La Boheme, and "E Lucevan Le Stelle" from Tosca
 4.  Giacamo Puccini: "Un Bel Di" from Madama Butterfly, and "Nessun Dorma" from Turandot;

5.  Gioacchino Rossini: overture and "Largo al factotum" (Figaro Figaro Figaro...) from Il Barbiere Di Siviglia (The Barber of Seville).
6.  Gioacchino Rossini: William Tell overture. Part 1; Part 2

They suggest using a selection of Opera favorites that contains most of these, such as Best Opera Album In The World ... Ever! and filling in any missing pieces with whatever else is on the CD. Puccini's "O mio babbino caro" from Gianni Schicchi, Bizet's "Au fond du temple saint" from The Pearl Fishers, Verdi's "Celeste Aida" from Aida would be worthy substitutes.
One possibility: 25 Opera Favorites
    1 - track 7. Giuseppi Verdi: "Triumphal March" from Aida; track 17. Gypsies' Chorus from Il Trovatore
    2 - track 3. Giuseppi Verdi: "Libiamo Ne'lieti Calici" (Brindisi) from La Traviata; track 9. "La Donne Il Mobile," from Rigoletto
    3 - track 21. Giacomo Puccini: "Che Gelida Manina" from La Boheme; track 23. "Quando M'en Vo" from La Boheme; track 18. "Vissi d'Arte" from Tosca
    4 - track 6. Giacamo Puccini: "Un Bel Di" from Madama Butterfly, track 5. "Nessun Dorma" from Turandot
    5 - track 4. Georges Bizet: "Au Fond du Temple Saint" from the Pearl Fishers; track 2. Gioacchino Rossini: "Largo al factotum" from The Barber of Seville
    6 - track 1. Gioacchino Rossini: William Tell overture
