Does anyone happen to have Vivaldi's "Sento in seno ch'in pioggia di lagrime" from Giustino?

Hi, everyone!

I've been looking around desperately for a full orchestral score of Stravinsky's Mavra (one-act opera) for a while now. Eventually my teacher suggested asking the Pianophilia Community for it. I would really really appreciate if anyone could post it (I need it for an assignment for which the deadline is 27th of April, so maybe sooner rather than later, if possible? Please?)

Thank you for your time! :)

It's generally accepted that Mozart's Idomeneo K366 is his greatest
opera seria, but there are a couple aspects of the work which
aren't entirely clear to me.

Firstly, there are about a dozen or so recordings of Idomeneo,
but none of them appear to specify whether or not they include
the associated Ballet Music K367. If any do, it would be great to
know where it appears within the opera.

Secondly, Richard Strauss produced a revamped version of Idomeneo,
which was premiered in 1931. A CD recording of this version is
currently available, but my attempts to find either a FS or a VS have
proved fruitless. Any ideas? Strauss removed Elettra from his version!

Any feedback on either of these two questions would be appreciated,
or indeed any other reflections on the opera itself. Btw, Mezzo today
screened the excellent Theater an der Wien production from 2013,
conducted by Rene Jacobs with Richard Croft in the title role.

A number of libraries in Worldcat show the VS published by Heinrichshofen 1931. The FS appears to be held by a few libraries as well.

Thank you Jim. I'll now have a further look for the VS.

There's a YouTube video of Richard Croft from the performance
I mentioned. This production did indeed include the Ballet Music
as a sort of coda to the opera. What action took place during it?
Well, Ilia gave birth to Idamante's child! This was not in Varesco's
original plot, of course, but nevertheless it was a wonderful
production of WAM's wonderful music.

Regards, Tim.

I recommend the Harnoncourt recording from 1980 (which I have on LP) which includes the ballet music in what I believe to be its correct place, at the end of the opera.

An interesting offering from the Bavarian library...

Der Barbier von Sevilla eine komische Oper in vier Acten
Autor: Benda, Friedrich Ludwig
URL: http://reader.digitale-sammlungen.de/de ... 0001.html/

... predating Rossini, of course.
