This delightful little quartet consists of Papageno’s aria and the following duet with Papagena which occurs near the end of the second act of Mozart’s "The Magic Flute". Both are popular with performers and audiences alike. This would be ideal for students or professionals. At only three and one-half minutes it is ideal for a short, lighthearted break during a concert or as an introduction to the work of Mozart. I hope you enjoy playing it as much as I enjoyed arranging it. My email is on each copy and comments and suggestions are always welcome.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:


seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.


Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
