A collection of nine well-known operatic arias from 19th century Italian composers Donizetti, Puccini, Bellini, Ponchielli, Verdi and Leoncavallo.The Schott String Quartet SeriesWith the first books in the series focusing on baroque, classical and romantic styles, The Schott String Quartet Series has expanded to cover music ranging from traditional pieces through to Eastern-influenced works. Aside from 'Indian Summer', which features original compositions, each book contains original arrangements of well known themes, which have often never been arranged for string quartet before. An important characteristic of these arrangements is that they allow all four instruments to demand the attention throughout the music. The pieces are suitable for amateur musicians or school students and are ideal for public performance.

  • Una furtiva lagrima from L'ELISIR D'AMORE (Donizetti) 
  • Vesti la giubba from I Pagliacci (Leoncavallo) 
  • Cielo e mar! from LA GIOCONDA (Ponchielli) 
  • Libiamo from LA TRAVIATA (Verdi) 
  • Vedi! le fosche from IL TROVATORE (Verdi)

    These appear to be very good arrangements for string quartet only; however, they are not suitable to accompany vocalists because almost all of them are in the wrong key. Una furtiva lagrima is in gm instead of Bbm, Mi chiamano Mimi is not even complete, Quando me'n vo' in...

    CM instead of EM, etc. Just about the only one in the correct key is Libiamo. Description here is more than a little misleading. Disappointed I will have to send this back or give to a quartet friend for weddings. I really wish the keys were listed in the description.
