About 'Miau, Miau, Miau - Duetto Buffo di due Gatti (Comic Duet for Two Cats)'
|Artist:||Rossini, Giacchino (biography) (sheet music)|
|Born:||1792 , Pesaro|
|Died:||1868 , Paris|
|The Artist:||Italian opera composer, whose work includes the comic masterpiece The barber of Seville. After intensive work on the opera William Tell, he spent the last 40 years of his life composing almost nothing, possibly in part due to ill health.|
The Duetto buffo di due gatti ("humorous duet for two cats") is a popular performance piece for two sopranos which is often performed as a concert encore. The "lyrics" consist entirely of the repeated word "miau" ("meow"). Sometimes it is also performed by a soprano and a tenor, or a soprano and a bass.
While the piece is typically attributed to Gioachino Rossini, it was not actually written by him, but is instead a compilation written in 1825 that draws principally on his 1816 opera, Otello. Hubert Hunt putatively claims that the compiler was Robert Lucas de Pearsall, who for this purpose adopted the pseudonym "G. Berthold".
