Vilja from the Merry Widow for Trombone Quartet composed by Franz Lehar (1870-1948). Arranged by Lisa Albrecht. For trombone quartet. German Operetta. Moderately advanced. Score and parts. Published by Cherry Classics (CY.CC2597).
Vilja is Franz Lehar's most famous aria and the Merry Widow where it is taken from is his most popular operetta. It's melody is intoxicatingly beautiful and leaves its listeners humming it long after the show is over. Lisa Albrecht of the Rochester Philharmonic has arranged a most lovely rendition of this great song for Trombone quartet.
About five minutes in length, this work is appropriate for an advanced player on the lead part and intermediate performers in the rest.
