"Chi il bel sogno di Doretta" from ’La Rondine’
Anyone who has seen the Merchant-Ivory film of "Room With a View" will remember the music as the two young lovers find themselves alone for the first time. Taken from one of Puccini’s lesser-known operas - ’La Rondine’ - this short aria carries all his trademarks: a wonderfully supple vocal line, an immediately appealing and hauntingly limpid melodic line. As I’d not found time to compose anything recently, I thought I would try my hand at arranging this piece from the piano score. The choice of an octet was deliberate as I wanted to use the extra colour and timbre offered by different doublings of the vocal line.
