BLOG: Viva Verdi!

“When I am alone with my notes, my heart pounds, and the tears stream from my eyes.”—Giuseppe Fortunino Francesco Verdi

Why do I like Verdi? Maybe it's because he wrote a drinking song called “Libiamo ne’ lieti calici” from “La traviata,” and drinking songs are “cool.” For example, “I’d Rather Have a Bottle in Front of Me (than a frontal lobotomy)” by Randy Hanzlick.—LINK
