- About this book
This volume offers a definition of the phenomenon that played an important role in the initial phase of the Italian cultural industry. The comprehensive survey of the immense production of potpourris, arrangements, fantasia, reminiscences and paraphrases for piano published in Italy in the nineteenth century clearly reveals the fundamental role that Verdi played in the development and expansion of the practice of «pieces on themes from operas».
