The dedicatee of this Ariettina, Zinaida Aleksandrovna Volkonskaya (1792-1862), was a famous Russian princess who was known as a writer, poet, composer and singer with a renowned mezzo-soprano voice. In October 11, 1825, the Princess Volkonskaya gave a private party in her house in Moscow on the occasion of her birthday. This was a gala event that included several orchestral and theatrical presentations by many artists. We know that Sor appeared in that event as a singer, singing a duet with a certain Mlle. Akulova. The poem O dolce amor di Zefiro, written by Italian poet Angela Veronese Mantovani (1778–1847), makes up the text of this work. This edition is based on an autograph manuscript. For an advanced vocalist and players.
