Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Reduced Orchestration: 1111 1000 11111 timp (opt)

Flute, Oboe, Clarinet, Bassoon, Horn, Violin I, Violin II, Viola, Cello, Double Bass, Timpani (optional)

This orchestral reduction is aimed for performance using ten players with the option of adding Mozart’s original timpani for an eleventh player. It can also be performed with a larger string section, and can be played on period instruments.

This reduced orchestration of Mozart’s Così fan tutte is complete and includes all the music from the opera including the less often performed aria of Guglielmo “Rivolgete a lui lo sguardo”.

The score and parts have bar numbers.

Recent performances have taken place in Australia, France, Denmark, the UK and across the USA where 2022 performances include Chicago Summer Opera and University of Florida Opera Theatre with Ocala Symphony Orchestra.

Utilizing an orchestral reduction by Jonathan Lyness, the eleven members of the production’s chamber orchestra furnished a surprisingly robust account of the score, proving in the opera’s sparkling Overture that their collective virtuosity rendered their small number inconsequential.”

Cosi fan tutte, Opera in Williamsburg.
