Gallay’s Fantaisie sur l’opéra L’elisire d’amore is considerably longer than most of his other opera fantasies and features a greater number of individual themes from the featured opera. The L'elisir d’amore premiered at La Scala, Milan in 1835 and in Paris (as L’elisire d’amore) in 1836. It was a tremendous success and quickly became one of the most performed works in the repertoire. Gallay’s Fantaisie, published in 1838, opens with the opera’s most famous aria; Nemorino’s ‘Una furtiva lacrima’, a theme Gallay returned to in an arrangement for voice, horn and piano. After a piano intermezzo the theme of the “Barcarola” duet for Dulcamara and Adina ‘Io son ricco e tu sei bella’ appears plus a variation on this theme. Gallay may have been inspired to include Neomorino’s adagio ‘Adina credimi’ by the plaintive horn countermelody in Donizetti’s original orchestration. The allegro finale is made of up two themes; Nemorino and Dr Dulcamara’s ‘Obbligato, Ah! Sì obbligato, son felice’ and Nemorino’s ‘Un po’del duo corraggio’ with the piano interludes including the ‘Un po’ del duo corragio’ theme from Nemorino’s interjections in the Act I Cavatina ‘Come paride vezzoso’.
