Mozart, Wolfgang A. (Beyer): (score/parts) The Magic Flute - Overture, K.620 – ARRANGED (string quartet), classical, Breitkopf & Härtel (MR32024), printed sheet music, notes.
Beyer manages to impressively exploit the possibilities of the string quartet and thereby describe the character of the works of Mozart in a harmonious soundscape that corresponds to the original in every way.
Christian Beyer (born in 1977), an active orchestral and chamber musician, as well as a sought-after arranger and conductor, presents this edition with an edition that speaks to many musicians from the heart. Mozart's overtures, which have a permanent place in almost all the concert halls of the world, can now also be performed in chamber music concerts.
The level of difficulty of these editions ranges from semi-professional to professional, although ambitious amateur musicians are also well-versed in the arrangements.
