In 1963 an unknown composition by Verdi was discovered at an Roman antiquarian. This 'Waltz in F Major' (Valzer in fa maggiore) must be a more early work considering the simplicity of the composition compared with Verdi's masterpieces of later date. But it's anyway a very nice waltz in Italian style which became popular when it was used in Luchino Visconti's 'Il Gattopardo' (The Leopard, 1963). In this movie it is heard - in an orchestration by Nino Rota - in the famous ballroom scene.
Italian arranger Marco Tamanini arranged the 'Waltz in F Major' for a Symphonic Band.
