Gioachino Rossini: Duetto buffo di due gatti (Comic duet for two cats)


    The Duetto buffo di due gatti ("humorous duet for two cats") is a popular performance piece for two sopranos which is often performed as a concert encore. The "lyrics" consist entirely of the repeated word "miau" ("meow"). Sometimes it is also performed by a soprano and a tenor, or a soprano and a bass.

    While the piece is typically attributed to Gioachino Rossini, it was not actually written by him, but is instead a compilation written in 1825 that draws principally on his 1816 opera, Otello. Hubert Hunt, in his biography of Robert Lucas de Pearsall, Robert Lucas Pearsall: the Compleat Gentleman and His Music, 1795-1856 (Chesham Bois,1977), putatively claims that the compiler was Pearsall, who for this purpose adopted the pseudonym "G. Berthold"
