Tune of the Day: Marsch der Priester

from Mozart's “The Magic Flute”, arranged for two flutes

At the beginning of Act II of Mozart's famous opera The Magic Flute, the council of priests of Isis and Osiris, headed by Sarastro, enters to the sound of this slow, solemn march. Mozart apparently completed this piece (and the overture to the opera) only two days before the work was premiered on September 30, 1791.
