An Introduction To-- Donizetti, L'elisir D'amore
The Elixir of LoveStreaming Audiobook - 2003
L'elisir d'amore, or The Elixir of Love, has remained popular for almost two centuries because of a touching tale and a galaxy of comic characters adapted from the traditional commedia dell' arte. Above all Donizetti poured into the score all the warmth and tenderness of the Italian temperament. His melodic invention never ceases to charm whether in the jolly rustic choruses, the exhilarating 'patter' numbers, or the sweet sadness of the beautiful arias, of which 'Una furtiva lagrima', the great tenor showpiece, is the best known.
