La Traviata (Prelude to Act I) by Leonard Falcone. For concert band. Bandworks. Grade 1. Score and set of parts. Published by Neil A. Kjos Music Company (KJ.B338).
This famous prelude echoes the sweet, triumphant and sad moments of the opera. A wonderful vehicle for encouraging expressive and sensitive playing! Careful attention to the contrast between the cantabile melodies and crisply articulated accompaniment will enhance its performance. The Prelude To Act III is also available from Kjos (B355-Two Verdi Preludes).
