'The Abduction from the Seraglio' by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, a comic opera in three acts, was extremely popular during the composer's lifetime. In order that this music could also be played by music lovers at home, the best-known and most popular pieces were often arranged for other instruments. Of Mozart's major operas alone, more than 50 arrangements for various instrumentations from around 1800 are known to exist as separate editions. This new edition contains a selection of scenes from the opera Die Entführung aus dem Serail in an arrangement for two flutes or violins. The duets whose author has remained unknown so far were arranged very skilfully and now constitute a selection of the most beautiful melodies from the opera. Up to now, the melodious duets have both high entertainment value and great educational value as they encourage the players' musical imagination and creativity.
