Tune of the Day: Ricevete, o padroncina
from Mozart's “The Marriage of Figaro”, arranged for two flutes
This graceful piece is sung by a two-part chorus of country girls in Act III of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's famous opera Le nozze di Figaro. The peasant girls present flowers to the Countess, “to demonstrate our love for you”, and among them is Cherubino, the Count's page, disguised.
