[PDF] Herbert, Victor - Kiss Me Again

Post by Adrian Allan » Mon Jun 25, 2018 7:46 pm

Victor August Herbert (February 1, 1859 – May 26, 1924) was an Irish-born, German-raised American composer, cellist and conductor. Although Herbert enjoyed important careers as a cello soloist and conductor, he is best known for composing many successful operettas that premiered on Broadway from the 1890s to World War I. He also wrote many orchestral pieces, including a cello concerto that has been recorded many times and is still popular today.

This piece is a waltz from the operetta Mille Modiste (1905). It was a mainstay of the canon of the singers of the time, such as Richard Tauber.



I arranged this piece in A major. See what you think - it could be a nice encore piece, or will stand alone as a period piece from the age of the light opera

The song was originally written for a soprano, so I have included this very fine performance, to give you an idea of what it should sound like.

Sadly, the guitar will never express a melodic line with such beauty, but we have to appreciate the guitar for what it is.
