Voi Che Sapete is an aria from the second act of W A Mozart’s comic opera, The Marriage of Figaro. It has become one of Mozart’s best loved melodies and features the servant Cherubino singing excitedly about his experience of first love. This version is arranged as a duet for one Violin and one Viola.

Musicians at an intermediate level and above will find this ideal for formal and informal performances, with both parts enjoying melodic interest. The duet format gives solo instrumentalists an opportunity to play music written for the voice. The overall performance time is a little over two minutes.

Teachers will enjoy using this arrangement as a fun way to help with ensemble skills and expressive playing. There is detailed articulation and a wide range of dynamics.

The sample recording is from the Clarinet and Alto Saxophone version of this duet.
