    Themes from La Sonnambula. Audio + sheet music in the youtube video.

    A little bit of cod-19th century nonsense :D On first hearing, my teacher observed of the section from 5.36 "That was a nice bit of Thalberg" which amused me. It was an awful job notating this! It was originally semi-improvised, then the compositional phase took over and it became organised. Audio is from my studio recording in 2012.

    I like your directive apocalittico which I had not seen anywhere else yet. The situation was IMO not serious enough to warrant it though :)

    Haha! It was a somewhat lurid instruction, not that there is a lot of restraint in much of the piece. :)
