Antonín Dvořák: Měsíčku na nebi hlubokém (Song to the Moon) from Rusalka (arranged for piano by Peter Breiner) (PB182)
This is a sheet music edition of Měsíčku na nebi hlubokém (Song to the Moon) from Rusalka by Antonín Dvořák.
Op. 114, B. 203
Arranged for piano solo by Peter Breiner
Dvořák’s ten operas are little known, apart from the enduring tale of Rusalka.
The opera tells the story of the water nymph Rusalka, who falls in love with a prince who comes to swim in her lake. Entranced, she wishes to become a human, and calls on the moon to tell the prince of her love.
She does this in the famous Song to the Moon, Dvořák’s most prized operatic aria.
