Tune of the Day: Deh vieni, non tardar
from Mozart's “The Marriage of Figaro”, arranged for two flutes
This famous aria is taken from Act IV of Mozart's opera Le nozze di Figaro. Susanna sings this love song (“Oh come, don't delay”) to her beloved while Figaro is hiding behind a bush; but he thinks the song is for the Count of Almaviva, and becomes increasingly jealous.
