TS engine started whistling - what is it?

My 2.0TS Spider has started whistling. It's worst when it's cold, but as time goes on the whistle is lasting longer.

It's particularly noticeable when accelerating through the gears ... when I depress the clutch and the revs drop momentarily after accelerating, that's when it's worst.

It's going in to Autolusso for a cambelt change at the end of the month, and the variator's starting to make it's rattly sound at startup, but is this something else that I should get them to look at?

As it's Italian, possibly an aria from an opera?

Belt, idler or tensioner?
