O Mio Babbino Caro & Musetta's Waltz
Puccini, G

Musicians Publications presents Giacomo Puccini's O Mio Babbino Caro from his famous opera Gianni Schicchi & Musetta s Waltz' from his famous opera La Boheme' arranged for flexible woodwind trio by Carson Rothrock. Scored for flute, oboe, and clarinet, this arrangement includes an optional clarinet part to replace the oboe when necessary.

Gianni Schicchi is a comic opera in one act by Giacomo Puccini composed in 1917-18. Based on an incident mentioned in Dante s Divine Comedy , the work is the third and final installment of Puccini s Ii trittico', three one-act operas with contrasting themes. Though originally written to be presented together, Gianni Schicchi continues to be performed alone or with one or both of the other trittico operas.

The aria O Mio Babbino Caro is one of Puccini s most popular and is considered by some to be one of the greatest arias in opera. Sung by the principal female character Lauretta (soprano), the aria could be characterized as the only moment of genuine emotion and expression in a tale fraught with duplicity and misdirection. Lauretta pleads with her father to ease tensions with the family of her true love, Rinuccio. - Westlake High School Wind Ensemble

This woodwind trio arrangement is advanced in difficulty.

Boheme , one of the most popular of operas, is a sentimental story of the love and death from consumption of Mimi, a poor young woman in Paris, a depiction of the so-called Bohemian life. The opera inspired the musical 1996 show R ent , which enjoyed its own popularity and which replaces tuberculosis with HIV.

Musetta s Waltz is one of the most recognizable of opera arias; you know this tune, even if you don t know what it is. In it, Musetta (the supporting lady), is dining out with Alcindoro, her rather boring lover. Tiring of him, she sings a risque aria to her past lover Marcello (who just happens to be in the restaurant), hoping to instill a little jealousy and perhaps kindle some passion. To get the old fool out of the way, she feigns a broken shoe; when Alcindoro takes it to be repaired, Musetta and Marcello embrace and disappear, leaving the bill for a large party to Alcindoro. -Robert Howe, 2017
