Music for Valentine’s Day

 

I heard a whimsical cello tune this morning at 8:57 that made me smile. It was from an operetta called Violettes Impériales. The song is “L’amour est un bouquet de violettes,” or “Love Is a Bouquet of Violets.” The composer is Francis Lopez. The musicians were the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra. Sol Gabettta played the cello. I couldn’t find the exact recording on YouTube, so I picked the two videos below. The first I love for the art; the second shows how lovely the music is on the piano.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
