[K620]. Die Zauberflöte eine Grosse Oper in zwey Aufzügen fürs Clavier oder Pianoforte... Prix f.5.5. [Piano-vocal score]
Berlin: J.J. Hummel... avec Privilege du Roi, a Amsterdam au grand Magazin de Musique [PNs 901and 842] [1792-93]. Folio. Contemporary dark green paper boards with decorative blindstamped rules to edges, white paper panel inset to upper with titling stamped in black within decorative blindstamped border: "Klara Germont. 1794." 1f. (title with attractive scene engraved by C.C. Glaßbach of Papageno, Tamino and snake), 1f. (table of contents: "Ouverture," "Introductio," and 25 musical numbers), 1f. (part title: "Ouverture fürs Clavier oder Pianoforte von Mozart"), 3-7 (overture), [i] (blank), 64 pp. Engraved. Ensembles no. 5 and 12 (according to standard numbering, not observed here) and much of the finales from both acts are omitted; the numbering of the included scenes is adjusted and continuous. Each number has a caption title following the pattern: "[title] Aus der Zauberflöte von Mozart." With printed note to head of terzetto "Nro. IV" (usually counted as no. 6), p. 17: "Liebhabern zu gefallen, welchen der Tenor Schlüssel fremd ist, habe ich selbigen im Discant Schlüssel übersetzt. Es verstehet sich aber, dass alles um eine Octave tiefer gesungen, oder gespielt wird" (To please amateurs unfamiliar with the tenor clef, I have transposed it into the soprano clef. It is understood, however, that everything will be sung or played an octave lower). Two stanzas (marked "2" and "3") of a most probably original poem in ink to front pastedown in German cursive (possibly in the hand of Klara Germont): "Nachtigallen im einsamen Hain/Seine süße Stimme zu hören,/würde [illegible] nicht für mich seyn. Er kann Liebesgesänge auch lehren./ Trost meines Lebens! /Ich lausche vergebens./So kommt noch nicht den Weeg daher. Echo, du hörest tausendmahl/Meine lauten Frauenlieder,/ wiederholtest es im Widerhall!/ Wenn er kommt, O! so sags ihm wieder!/ Trost meines Lebens! / ich rufe vergebens!/ O weh! O Weh!/Mich hört er nicht, ich ihn nicht mehr." Calculations in pencil to right of poem. Boards considerably worn and partially detached, spine mostly lacking. Some soiling and staining; occasional foxing; title slightly soiled; thumbed at lower outer corners. A strong, clear impression.. An early edition. Köchel 6 p. 620. RISM M4792. Rare. A second, supplementary, volume containing that portion of the music not included in the initial volume was printed slightly later.
