Pizza, pasta, vino bianco, gelati, il mare, amore … and so much more! All in all: La Dolce Vita! And what would the good life in Italy be without its typical music? Whether it is arias from famous operas, traditional village songs or commercial hits that travel the globe: pieces like Gné Gné, 'O sole mio or Vieni sul mar capture the Italian love of life.
Working on this book brought me great pleasure. I hope that these easy arrangements give you a taste of Italian musical culture and whet your appetite for the many characteristics of Italy.
