Tesoro mio!
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
In the sunny south of Europe we meet Ernesto Becucci (1845–1905), who was born at Radicondoli in Tuscany and studied in Florence, where he also died. A successful teacher, his compositions were mostly in lighter style, among which several enjoyed considerable local success. It was above all the waltz Tesoro mio! (‘My treasure!’), dating from the 1890s, that gained him international acclaim, enjoying renewed popularity in Britain around 1950 when it was fitted with English words as ‘Waltzing the Hours Away’.
