Ah perdona al primo affetto
Free Vocal Sheet Music

Ah perdona al primo affetto is a little-known duet for high voices by Mozart.

This free vocal sheet music is very pretty, and has all the charm we expect from Mozart. This vocal duet needs to be better known -- it practically sings itself, it is so irresistible. 

From the opera "La clemenza de Tito" (The mercy of Tito), the duet roles belong to a soprano and a mezzo-soprano who plays the part of a young man -- a "trouser role," as it is known in opera.

Therefore the "male" role is set high. It may seem odd to your students at first, but it will give you an opportunity to share a little history of opera... what was a castrato, for example? 



This version of the music and lyrics of "Ah, perdona al primo affetto" comes from the Petrucci Library at IMSLP. There, it is in the key of A.

I have transposed it into several other keys to make it easier for my vocal students.

You may also download the complete score for piano and voices for $5.00, which includes 5 different keys, and MY PERMISSION TO PRINT UNLIMITED COPIES, for your students and accompanists.
