Misc. Comments

This from a recording: "This beautiful mattinata (morning song) first appeared in 1888 as a musical supplement to the magazine Paganini, named after the legendary violin virtuoso Niccolò Paganini. Puccini obviously remembered Sole e Amore when he was writing La Bohème seven years later, and those familiar with that opera will note that this song forms the basis of the famous double duet that concludes the third act. In fact, Puccini called this song the “first embryo” of Bohème."
