In the space of a few months, in the autumn and winter of 1789, Mozart filled more than 650 pages of a score that shows practically no signs of mental or physical exertion. The result was one of his most profound operas, Così fan tutte , which has held listeners spellbound with its blend of bitterness and comedy to the present day.
Our new easy-to-play vocal score is based on the volume edited by Faye Ferguson and Wolfgang Rehm for the “New Mozart Edition” (NMA II/5/18) and on the latest scholarly findings from the critical commentary published by Henning Bey and Faye Ferguson in 2003.
