    The Marriage of Figaro Overture - Phillip Littlemore

    The opera The Marriage of Figaro was the first of three successful collaborations with the the librettist Lorenzo Da Ponte – the other two being Don Giovanni and Cosi Fan Tutte . Da Ponte’s libretto for The Marriage of Figaro is based on the play of the same name by Pierre-Augustin Caron de Beaumarchais. The play was considered scandalous at the time due to its political commentary on the excesses of the aristocracy and also its overly sexual nature. Da Ponte removed much of the political commentary, moderated the most risqu? parts and increased the pace of the action for Mozart’s opera. Premiered in 1786 at the Burg-Theatre in Vienna, with Mozart conducting. The overture, while containing none of the opera’s melodic themes, sets the tone and pace of the action to follow. Item Code: TPBB-076 Duration: 6'00" Grade: Suitable for all

The action takes place in just one day and offers a series of awkward and humorous situations, complete with a vibrant dialogue between the all the main characters. Voi Che Sapeteis performed by Cherubino, who is about to be sent off to the army because the Count finds him a nuisance. When Cherubino appears before the Countess and Susanna to tell them of his fate, this aria is sung at the request of Susanna for a love song. Cherubino is characterized as a young adolescent who is in love with every woman he meets, and because his voice is yet unbroken, he is always played by a female singer.Duration: 2:30

It has an upbeat side to its personality, bringing forth a modern sound to complement the classical interludes. The piece was originally written to make an impact in an entertainment competition programme, working extremely well as an exciting ?'finisher?'.Through combining new sounds with classically familiar melodies, ?'Rhapsody on Overturian Themes?' is a feature piece which can find its worthy place in the concert programme of a championship section (or upper level 1st section) band.
