Wie stark ist nicht dein Zauberton for flute quintet
This delightful piece of music is Tamino’s well-known aria. He sings it just after approving the mighty powers of the magic flute, praising the wondrous effect of her playing. What could be better music for a flute ensemble? The simple beauty of the melody will enchant audiences!
The lyrics are noted in the score and parts because it’s helpful to see where to take the leading part of the singing tenor, and where to withdraw and accompany it. Of course, flutists don’t have to sing!
