Voi avete un cor fedele

In 1775 Mozart received a commission to write the substitution aria “Voi avete un cor fedele,” K. 217, for an unknown soprano in an Italian comic opera troupe passing through Salzburg. The aria, which was inserted into Baldassare Galuppi’s comic opera Le nozze di Dorina, was undoubtedly better suited to the unknown soprano’s voice than the original one. In this aria we see an early manifestation of the opera buffa style years before Mozart composed his Italian comic opera masterpieces - Le nozze di Figaro, Don Giovanni and Così fan tutte. Cecilia Bartoli sings.
