Look Un baccio di mano
Detailed Description

Un baccio di mano (Concert Aria K.V. 541). Composed by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791). Arranged by Jos van de Braak. For Baritone voice and Wind Ensemble. Grade 3. Full score and set of parts. Duration 2:30. Published by Baton Music (BF.BM066-SET).

The Aria Un baccio di mano (A handkissing) was conceived in May 1788 in Vienna for the singer Francesco Albertarelli as part of the opera Le Geloise fortunate from the Italian composer Pasquale Anfossi. In those days, Mozart lived in great poverty and had a bad health. Maybe that was the reason he had to compose music for some colleagues. The text of this aria is probably from Lorenza da Ponte, the famous Viennese court poet. Mozart again used the main theme of this arietta (a short aria) in the first part of his Jupiter Symphony ( K. V. 551).
