Pa pa pa (from the Opera Die Zauberflote). Composed by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791). Arranged by Roger Niese. For Soprano voice, Baritone voice and Wind Ensemble. Grade 3. Full score. Duration 2:30. Published by Baton Music (BF.BM216-SCORE).
Die Zauberflote isn't a romantic love story but a real parable: a resemblance about higher human striving to purity and self-improvement. Not love between two people is in the centre but a more individual and higher form of it that should exist between all people. The comic duet Pa pa pa is placed at the very end of the opera: Papageno and Papagena are reunited, despite Papageno's failure to maintain silence, one of the trials he had to undergo to be accepted into the brotherhood of the temple.
