Briccialdi - Carnival of Venice

Sheet music for flute

Alt. Title: Il Carnevale di Venezia
Info: The famous folk tune known as "Il Carnevale di Venezia" or “The Carnival of Venice” has been the subject of many differents arrangements and transcriptions, but none more virtuosic than Giulio Briccialdi's version for flute and piano.
