Misc. Comments

The source of this duetto is an addendum to an article on the death of the composer in the periodical, "Wiener Zeitschrift für Kunst, Literatur, Theater und Mode" 1825, vol. 116. Joseph Haydn (1732–1809) wrote a duetto (Hob.XXVa/2) to the same poem which he ascribed to Carlo Francesco Badini (ca.1710–ca.1810), author of the libretto to his opera "L’anima del filosofo ossia Orfeo ed Euridice" (Hob.XXVIII/13), see Joseph Haydn Werke Reihe XXIX, Band 2, München 1988. In a manuscript copy of this song, "Governativo G-Mss-258" (1811–1840), preserved at Conservatorio di musica S. Cecilia, Roma Pietro Metastasio, synonym for Pietro Antonio Domenico Trapassi (1698–1782), is stated as poet ("Scritto da Metastasio e messo in musica da Haydn mentre i due illustri Autori convivevano nella Stessa Casa"). Another duetto to this text, Duetto di Metastasio, G.183 by the Danish composer, Georg Gerson (1790-1825) is found in manuscript, "Partiturer No. 5, George Gersons samling: mu 7105.0963 C II, 6b" page 182–191 preserved at the Royal Library of Copenhagen, Denmark. Gerson ascribes the poem to Metastasio. The text in the 3 duettos differ somewhat from each other.
