Some of you may want to try my new arrangement of Puccini's "Vissi d'arte," from the opera, "Tosca." Advance technique required.

Yes, looks interesting!  I've downloaded it.  Haven't tried it.  I've never ever really seen a bonafide piano trapnscription of anything from verismo opera.  Other then the piano vocal scores.  You know, something to play in a concert.
There is one blatant misprint on page 3, but you probably already know that. I would love to do a wonderful transcription of the manon lescaut intermezzo!  Have you ever done that?  What else have you done from that period?
