Santa Lucia arr. piano in C


Santa Lucia has its origins as a Neopolitan song with its lyrics celebrating the outdoor lives of boatmen who lived and worked in the Bay of Naples in what sound to be very happy times. The repeat is not played in the realisation but in performance can be added. Instrument players should be aiming to develop their legato playing and quality of tone when playing the piece and there are opportunities to slow the tempo at the ends of phrases which is not indicated in the score. A tempo of 96 quarter note (crotchet) beats is used in the playback in this version which is in the key of C. As this will be a familiar melody to any audience the piece will need to be known thoroughly before any performance.
