Papageno—“birdman” and resident clown of Mozart's psychedelic opera The Magic Flute—sings joyously at his eleventh-hour reunion with his true love, Papagena. In this mash-up of his felicitous arias, listen for the polarities; the lines between humor and menace, fantasy and reality, and the masculine and feminine blur into a four-hand pianistic whirl of flirtation.
