Listen: Hear 'Bei Maennern' from 'The Magic Flute'
Sir Roger Norrington joins NPR's Fred Child in Salzburg for Mozart's birthday celebration. We hear the maestro leading the Camerata Salzburg in the Menuet from Mozart's Symphony No. 41, the "Jupiter."
Norrington then directs the London Classical Players in the slow movement of Mozart's Symphony No. 40 in G Minor and the famous duet "Bei Maennern" from the opera The Magic Flute. Dawn Upshaw and Andreas Schmidt are the vocal soloists.
Finally, we hear a concert performance of Norrington conducting the Salzburg Camerata in excerpts from Mozart's Posthorn Serenade, in Purchase, New York.
