The Duetto buffo di due gatti ("humorous duet for two cats") is a popular performance piece for two treble voices, often performed as a concert encore. The "lyrics" consist entirely of the cat-like vocalization, "miau" ("meow"). While the piece typically is attributed to Gioachino Rossini, it was not actually composed by him as is. It actually is a compilation of the "Katte-Cavatine" by the Danish composer C.E.F. Weyse and segments from Act II of Rossini’s opera Othello, i.e., Othello and Iago’s duet and the cabaletta to the aria "Ah, come mai non senti", sung by Rodrigo. The arranger’s identity is not known.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:


seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.


Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
