|The Magic 1791: Mozart & Müller
Just few know that in 1791,
months before Magic Flute premiere,
at Leopoldstadt (few kms near Vienna)
The Magic Zither premiered.
It was written by Wenzel Müller,
a pupil of von Dittersdorf.
Since Magic Zither story was very
similar to Magic Flute story,
Schikaneder, fearing accusations
of plagiarism, changed a bit
the plot of Magic Flute!
With this CD you can make
a first comparison between
Mozart’s & Müller’s music…!
