Variations in F major on 'Ein Mädchen oder Weibchen' from Mozart's Die Zauberflöte, Op 66
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The variations on Mozart’s theme ‘Ein Mädchen oder Weibchen’, probably composed in 1798, reflect Beethoven’s great admiration for that composer and his opera Die Zauberflöte. The splendid theme is varied here with sovereign skill and constantly shown from new angles. The buoyant mood of Papageno’s well-known aria is on occasion transformed by bold modulations which give it an introverted twist in the two variations in the minor. Despite the jovial virtuosity of the concluding variation, Beethoven brings the work to a cheerful but at the same time thoughtful conclusion.
