Traviata, La by Francesco Maria Piave

Book Description

"La traviata" was initially far from a success, Verdi declared its 1853 premiere a "fiasco," and later reworked parts of five pieces in the first two acts, retaining the original setting for the rest. The first performance of the new version in 1854 was a tremendous success, and the opera was quickly taken up by theatres around the world. This critical edition presents the 1854 version as the main score, and also makes available the full score and the original 1853 settings of the revised pieces. For this text Fabrizio della Seta used the composer's autograph and many secondary sources, but also Verdi's previously unknown sketches. These sketches helped corroborate the original readings and illuminate the work's compositional stages. A detailed critical commentary discusses source problems and anbiguities.

Corsaro, Il by Francesco Maria Piave Corsaro, Il, Hardback (February 1999)

The score of "Il Corsaro" was completed by Verdi in 1846 and premiered in the Teatro Grande of Trieste. This is the full score, which shows the gradual consolidation of Verdi's mature style through his contacts with French opera. It is accompanied by a commentary and five facsimiles.
