Song Number 89 in our countdown of 100 classical songs was written by Giuseppe Verdi (1813-1901) and is titled La donna e mobile, which translates to “The woman and mobile.” Perhaps it loses something in the translation.
And song number 90 was written by the same composer and is titled Addio, del passato, which translates to “Goodbye, of the past.”
You know what this means, right? There are only 10 songs to go and then the list is complete.
Giuseppe Fortunino Francesco Verdi (October 9 or 10, 1813 – January 27, 1901) was an Italian composer best known for his operas. He was born near Busseto to a provincial family of moderate means, receiving a musical education with the help of a local patron. Verdi came to dominate the Italian opera scene after the era of Gioachino Rossini, Gaetano Donizetti, and Vincenzo Bellini, whose works significantly influenced him.
