Tune of the Day: Variations on “Non più mesta”

for two flutes

Today we propose a set of variations on the aria “Non più mesta” from Rossini's 1812 opera La Cenerentola (Cinderella), kindly contributed to our collection by its composer, Corrado Cristaldi from Italy.

These variations extend an arrangement for two flutes originally published in the 1833 collection Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, trying to respect the Romantic style while at the same time keeping the piece light and enjoyable.
