Full title: Four Favorite Airs from Mozart's Favorite Opera of Cosi fan Tutte, Arranged for the Harp or Piano Forte

Mozart's opera Cosi Fan Tutte was first performed in 1790, and here French harpist and composer Philippe-Jacques Meyer has arranged Al Fanto Dan Legge, E'Amore un Ladroncello, Una Bella Serenata, and Prendero Quel Brunettino for the harp or piano.

This was published by Robert Birchall, a music seller, publisher, and instrument dealer, from his premises at 133 New Bond Street London, where he operated from 1789 to 1819. This piece was entered at Stationers' Hall in July 1811.


As mentioned, and as is usual for music of this age, the sheets are disbound. There is some age-related toning but the score remains readable and the plate marks are visible. There is some edgewear to the pages' fore-edge but otherwise this remains a good early printing.
