Verdi Fantasy on La Traviata for Flute and Piano

Verdi Fantasy on La Traviata for Flute and Piano

Publisher-Universal Edition
Edited by Emmanuel Pahud


This edition of the Traviata Fantasy for flute and piano is based on two popular arrangements by the famous Italian flautists Emanuele Krakamp (1813 – 1883) and Giulio Briccialdi (1818 – 1881). Both were also composers and produced numerous compositions of their own as well as arrangements of famous works by their contemporaries.
The latter included their fantasies on themes from Giuseppe Verdi’s La Traviata.

Yoel Gamzou has combined both arrangements to create the orchestral version of the Fantasy on La Traviata which is also published by Universal Edition. The present edition of the Fantasy on La Traviata for flute and piano also serves as the piano score of Yoel Gamzou’s orchestral version that is published by Universal Edition.

We musicians are always on the lookout for new sounds and interesting repertoire that give our instrument an unmistakable profile. The Flute Collection is my contribution to this search. After all, our imagination should be the only limit. Emmanuel Pahud (Vienna, April 2012)

Giuseppe Verdi

Verdi (1813–1901) was a leading Italian composer of opera during the 19th century. Born in Milan, Italy, Verdi is renowned for his remarkable operas, including iconic works such as Rigoletto (1851), Il Trovatore (1853), La Traviata (1853), Don Carlos (1867), Aida (1871), Otello (1887), and Falstaff (1893). His composition, the Requiem Mass (1874), is also widely celebrated.

Verdi’s musical journey began in his early years, receiving lessons and playing the organ as a young prodigy in the village church. He later studied privately with composer Vincenzo Lavigna in Milan, immersing himself in the intellectual and operatic atmosphere of the city. Verdi’s career took off when his opera, Oberto, conte di San Bonifacio, was successfully produced at La Scala in 1839. Despite personal tragedies and setbacks, Verdi’s talent and perseverance led him to create masterpieces like Nabucco (1842) and Macbeth (1847), establishing him as a prominent figure in Italian music.

After a successful career, Verdi retired to his estate in Sant’Agata, devoting his time to farming and philanthropic endeavours. His legacy lives on as one of the greatest composers in the history of opera.
