Overview

The sheer beauty, perfection, and profundity of Mozart's music continue to astonish and delight listeners two centuries after the composer's death. Although Mozart wrote with incredible versatility in every musical genre, his operas, for many, stand highest among his achievements. This volume contains the composer's greatest operatic overtures, enormously popular with music lovers worldwide, including those unfamiliar with the operas themselves. Heard regularly in concerts and on recordings, these overtures are justly famous in their own right.
In addition to the overtures from two early works of freshness and youthful exuberance — Idomeneo and The Abduction from the Seraglio — this collection includes the overtures from five world-famous works: The Marriage of Figaro, Don Giovanni, Cosi Fan Tutte, The Magic Flute, and La Clemenza di Tito.
Music lovers will treasure this attractive, inexpensive collection, reproduced in full score from an authoritative early edition.
