The Magic Flute Overture

W. A. Mozart
The Magic Flute was Mozarts last opera and is one of his most popular.
It premiered in Vienna, Austria, on 30 Sept 1791, with Mozart
conducting the orchestra.
The Overture was apparently written last, since it was not presented to
the orchestra until the day of the dress rehearsal. The Overture is
unrelated to the opera; none of the themes of the operas music appear
in it.
Mozart died 5 Dec 1791, only 2 months after the premiere.
The arrangement for saxophone quartet is difficult to play (rating 6)
because of the rapid tonguing required in the soprano and alto parts.
The tempo cannot be as fast as a string orchestra, be should be set as
fast as the tonguing can be performed well.
Except for the tonguing problem, the piece is not difficult and would
deserve a rating of 3 or 4.
