This work is “Libiamo ne' lieti calici” from Opera “La Traviata” by Giuseppe Verdi (1813～1901). I guess this piece is the most famous piece from "La traviata", and fashionable society in France of 19th century is well described.
Originally, this piece is for Duo by Violetta and Alfred. For this work, I transcribed to solo and accompaniment piano.
I made “For a solo instrument and Piano” series so that all players (any instruments) can play and enjoy the classical famous melodies, casually. Some instruments may have seldom opportunities of solo, but I presume you can enjoy the playing of this piece.
Remarks on play:
Breath marks on a solo instrument are according to the original lyrics of “Libiamo ne' lieti calici”. You don’t always need take breathes, but I think they’ll be a hint for play (of course, you can take breathes on them).
・Both solo and accompaniment: Grace notes can be omitted if they are hard to play.
・At the Finale of the piece, you can play higher notes or lower notes as you like. For your reference,
Higher notes: Violetta, Lower notes: Alfred.
