Tune of the Day: Pa, pa, pa
from Mozart's “The Magic Flute”, arranged for two flutes and piano
This famous duet is sung in the finale of Act II of Mozart's Die Zauberflöte, when the birdcatcher Papageno uses his magic bells to summon Papagena. Papageno is so thrilled to find his beloved Papagena that at first they can only stutter blissed-out “Pa … pa … pa …” noises at each other!
