about this recording:

Now I have quite some work ahead. – By Sunday next week, my opera must be set to harmony – otherwise someone else will beat me to it – and will have the benefit instead of me, Mozart wrote to his father on July 20, 1782. Arrangements were business as usual, and if the number of arrangements is any indication of a composer’ or a work’s popularity, then Mozart already held the top position at that time. Arrangement for two flutes were particularly attractive. For example, the Magic Flute “arrangée pour deux flûtes” was published more than a dozen times by different publishing houses everywhere in Europe in the years following the premiere, some edited anonymously, some arranged by renowned composers, strangely enough some of them in identical versions but with different names.

Munich flautists Elisabeth Weinzierl and Edmund Wächter have been performing in concerts in many European countries as well as the USA for three decades. In addition to solo and chamber musical works for one flute, they present compositions for two flutes with or without accompaniment as their specialty.
