Tune of the Day: Bei Männern, welche Liebe fühlen
from Mozart's “The Magic Flute”, arranged for two flutes
This duet is sung by Pamina and Papageno in Act I of Mozart's famous opera Die Zauberflöte, or The Magic Flute. Papageno announces to Pamina that her mother, the Queen of the Night, has sent Tamino to her aid. Pamina rejoices to hear that Tamino is in love with her, and then offers sympathy and hope to Papageno, who longs for a wife to love. Together they sing an ode to love: “In men who feel love, a good heart is not lacking”.
