On the piano keyboard, it is made up of two black keys: B, and D and five white keys: C, Ab, G, E, and Db. This combination makes this scale - as well as the C Arezzo Major Diatonic Hexachord, C Enigmatic, and C Neapolitan Major - as great choices for composing or improvising Italian music.
If we take a look a the key signature of the C Verdi's Enigmatic descending Scale we can find it has two flats and no sharps. Therefore, on sheet music you will find two accidentals on the score. The notes of this scale are: C, B, Ab, G, E, D, and Db.
