 One of the great opera masterpieces! January 9, 2013 By Stephen Schoeman (Westfield, NJ) See All My Reviews "Mozart's The Magic Flute is one of the great opera masterpieces! The music alone which Mozart composed is beyond compare. Such fluency. Such melody. Such lightness of touch combined with a serious of purpose. The purpose is to show the audience and the world that it is indeed possible for there to be peace, harmony, and love, whatever the trials and tribulations. The Magic Flute and La Clemenza di Tito were composed about the same time in the last year of Mozart's life. The latter too is intended as a statement by Mozart. That clemency is a virtue. That a person must not alter his or her good and generous character or nature because other people take advantage of it or mean the person ill. These messages resonated then and they resonate today and will, of course, in the long days ahead. Having the highlights to The Magic Flute is fine but having the entire opera complete with the libretto to study further Mozart's hopes would help though the libretto is readily available elsewhere. Mozart who excelled in all forms of classical music was especially devoted to composing for the opera. Hard to believe given the excellence of al his other music! There is in Mozart's operas none of the depressive aspects which mark all but two of Verdi's opera. Verdi composed only two comedies. And as well with Puccini there is lacking Mozart's delicacy and lightness of touch. Puccini for the most part with the exception of one opera is all about tragedy which he milks with every musical melodramatic invention at his command. At least Donizetti did compose several comic operas and they are excellent. Rossini would have none of that lugubriousness which marks Verdi and Puccini. Leave it to Mozart to tell us to this day that music can take us to the very heights of human excellence where love, peace, and harmony reign supreme. That was a message Verdi and Puccini and Wagner were incapable of delivering. This is all the more reason to purchase this CD of highlights of The Magic Flute!" Report Abuse
