Magic flutes & enchanted forests : the supernatural in eighteenth-century musical theater by David J Buch( )

11 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,942 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing on hundreds of operas, singspiels, ballets and plays with supernatural themes, this book argues that the tension between fantasy and Enlightenment-era rationality shaped some of the most important works of 18th-century musical theatre and profoundly influenced how audiences and critics responded to them

Liedersammlung für Kinder und Kinderfreunde am Clavier : (1791)( )

7 editions published in 2014 in German and English and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The genre of Kinderlieder-children's verses set to music with keyboard accompaniment-flourished in the German-speaking lands in the last third of the eighteenth century. The Liedersammlung für Kinder und Kinderfreunde am Clavier (1791), edited by Placidus Partsch, was the first collection of such songs to be published in the imperial capital of Vienna; it was originally intended to comprise four volumes representing the four seasons of the year, though only the volumes titled Frühlingslieder (Spring Songs) and Winterlieder (Winter Songs) survive today. Eleven composers contributed to this collection, including such Viennese musical luminaries as Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Johann Baptist Wanhal, Wenzel Müller, and probably Leopold Hofmann. ... Each of the two surviving volumes contains thirty songs, suggesting that all four volumes would have included 120 songs. This edition is the first to include all sixty surviving lieder." --
Two operas from the series Die zween Anton. Vienna, 1789 by Benedikt Schack( )

9 editions published in 2015 in 3 languages and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Among the forgotten but highly popular operas of the late eighteenth century, Der dumme Gärtner aus dem Gebürge oder Die zween Anton (The Dumb Gardener from the Mountains or The Two Antons, Vienna, 12 July 1789) seems particularly worthy of reexamination. The Antons (as Mozart called it) was the subject of much commentary and praise; it was performed in almost every German theatre over the next two decades, and it was translated into Czech. The success of the opera inspired six sequels and secured the place of its author, Emanuel Schikaneder, in the popular imagination of the Viennese public. This success also made possible the series of fairy-tale operas that included Mozart's Die Zauberflöte (1791). Die zween Anton was also the first original opera of Emanuel Schikaneder produced at the Theater auf der Wieden after he had taken over its direction; the music was a collaborative composition by Franz Xaver Gerl, Benedikt Schack, Johann Baptist Henneberg, and probably Schikaneder himself. With the recent recovery of a Viennese manuscript copy of Die zween Anton in Hamburg's State and University Library, we can now investigate this opera in detail." --
Two operas from the series Die zween Anton. Vienna, 1789 by Benedikt Schack( )

2 editions published in 2016 in German and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The stunning success of Der dumme Gärtner aus dem Gebürge oder Die zween Anton at Vienna's Theater auf der Wieden (12 July 1789) led quickly to a sequel in the same year, Die verdeckten Sachen (26 September). Like its predecessor, the music was a collaborative composition by Franz Xaver Gerl, Benedikt Schack, Johann Baptist Henneberg, and probably Schikaneder himself. Mozart had high praise for the Antons, and he composed his final set of piano variations on one of the most celebrated arias in Die verdeckten Sachen, "Ein Weib ist das herrlichste Ding auf der Welt." This edition will present this aria for the first time in its original orchestration. With the recent identification of performing materials for Die verdeckten Sachen in Rudolstadt, Thuringia, we can now investigate this opera in detail." --
