Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756–1791) “Muesst ich auch durch tausend Drachen” KV 435 (416b)
Reconstruction of the Aria edited by Franz Beyer [T,orch] Duration: 6'

The well-known fact that Franz Beyer knows Mozart’s orchestral writing inside and out has endowed the reconstruction of two Mozart arias with an utmost degree of authenticity. While the soprano aria "Der Liebe himmlisches Gefühl" survived only in a piano reduction, at least a few bars of the original score of the tenor "dragon" song have come down to us, providing a valuable starting point.
