Une Bouche Aimee is originally by Charles Gounod (1818-1893) and is based on 'My Beloved Spake', for soprano, cello obbligato and piano. Composed in London in 1871/72 and setting words from 'The Song of Solomon', Bottesini transcribed it for voice, double bass and piano, transposing it into a lower key and adding new words.
Tutto il Mondo Serra is a transcription of Frederic Chopin's 'Etude in C sharp minor' Op.25, No.7, originally for solo piano, but also transcribed by many others for different instrumental combinations. The words for both arias are by an unknown author and are unlikely to be by Bottesini. The double bass part in the piano accompaniment includes the original Bottesini bowings, and the printed solo parts are edited by David Heyes.
This edition is in orchestral tuning and contains a piano-vocal score along with a separate bass part.
- Contains the following pieces:
- Une Bouche Aimée
