Mozart, Wolfgang Amadeus (biography)
January 27, 1756 , December 5, 1791
Salzburg , Vienna
A child prodigy, Mozart wrote his first symphony when he was eight years old and his first opera at 12. He went on to write some of the most important masterpieces of the Classical era, including symphonies, operas, string quartets and piano music.
"Madamina, il catalogo e questo" (also known as the Catalogue Aria) is a bass aria from Mozart's opera Don Giovanni to an Italian libretto by Lorenzo Da Ponte, and is one of Mozart's most famous and popular arias.
It is sung by Don Giovanni's servant Leporello to Elvira during Act I Scene 2 of the opera. Sung to a mostly light-hearted tune, it consists of a description and detailed count of his master's numerous lovers.
