fave Mozart works–the Twittersphere has spoken (part trois)

The delightful classical connoisseur @amzenon responded to my Tweet requesting the name of their very favorite Mozart piece, saying one word, “Figaro.”

Apparently, Le nozze di Figaro (The Marriage of Figaro) was Operatoonity readers’ favorite, too, having won the favorite Mozart opera poll with more than 34% of the vote compared to next best, Die Zauberflöte, with 25%.

In the final installment of “Fave Mozart works,”  in honor of Mozart’s birthday, here is the overture to Le Nozze di Figaro performed by the Miyazaki International Music Festival Orchestra, 2009 (a splendid version, I might add). Hope you like it, too.
