Out of all the Italian opera that exists, this aria is on my top five list. It makes me cry every time I hear it. You did a fantastic job with it. Congratulations and thank you.

That is excellent.
Puccini is the most romantic composer to my taste.
:merci:

I'm a little late in discovering this and the rest of your music but thanks for the fine arrangement, free score and your performance. I can see Raimondi singing to Freni as you play. Boheme is my Dad's favorite opera and this moment in opera is also a favorite of mine so I look forward to playing it.

I love Puccini and your arrangement and playing is beautiful! It also had the feel of an aria! Just perfect!
What guitar are you using? It has a lovely tone!

Wow, thank you all for your comments! To answer your questions: in this video, I'm playing a wonderful guitar by Brian Cohen (2003). I don't think I'm allowed to post links, but if you google "New Century Guitar" you should be able to find my website. The link is also in the video's description.

You have captured the lyricism of the voice and the accompaniment of the orchestra in your arrangement and your playing.

Puccinni is the one composer that will bring me to tears. Poor Mimi!
