Tune of the Day: Non più mesta

from Rossini's “La Cenerentola”, arranged for two flutes

This famous aria is sung by Angelina at the end of Gioachino Rossini's 1817 opera La Cenerentola (Cinderella). Rossini had composed the tune a year earlier for Count Almaviva's final aria, “Ah! il più lieto, il più felice”, in The Barber of Seville, a number that is generally omitted from productions nowadays.

The present arrangement for two flutes appeared in Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in 1833.
