La Donna è Mobile for String Quartet

6.00 8.00

The famous canzone from Verdi's Rigoletto arranged for string quartet.

Add To Cart

It is said that every gondolier in Venice was singing this catchy tune after Rigoletto premiered in 1851. Since then this canzone had remained popular as one of the most famous and recognizable pieces in the operatic repertoire.

The light, singing tune in 3/8 makes this an ideal selection for parties and receptions. After the first violin gets to sing the entirety of the theme I tried to make the second half more conversational so every instrument gets to sing at least part of the tune.

When listening to the audio sample please keep in mind that is is only a demo rendered by cheap, sample synthesizers. It doesn't have any regard for the many ritards which is one of the main reasons why this piece can be so much fun, so use your imagination a bit.
