Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Magic Flute ~ Papageno’s Aria

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Die Zauberflöte, K. 620 – Act 2, Aria: “Ein Mädchen Oder Weibchen” ~ “A Maiden Or A Little Wife” Aria.

Ein Mädchen oder Weibchen
A girl or a little wife

Wünscht Papageno sich
Wishes Papageno

O so ein sanftes Täubchen
O, such a soft little dove

Wär Seligkeit für mich.
Would be bliss for me.

Dann schmeckte mir Trinken und Essen;
Then drink and food would taste good to me;
Dann könnte’ ich

Then I could
mit Fuersten mich messen,
Measure myself with princes,

Des Lebens als Weiser mich freun,
Enjoy life as a wiseman,

und wie im Elysium sein.
And feel like I’m in Elysium.

Ach, kann ich denn keiner von allen
Ah, can I not please any of all

den reizenden Mädchen gefallen?
Those charming girls?

Helf’ eine mir nur aus der Not,
If only someone would help me out in this need,

Sonst gräm¹ ich mich wahrlich zu Tod.
Otherwise I will worry myself to death.

Wird keiner mir Liebe gewähren,
If no one will grant me love,

So muss mich die Flamme verzehren;
Then the flame must consume me;

Doch küsst mich ein weiblicher Mund,
Still, if a feminine mouth kisses me,

so bin ich schon wieder gesund.
Then I will be immediately well again!

Performed by Michael Kraus, Georg Solti; Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, Vienna State Opera Chorus.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – German dance No.3 in C-major K 605 ‘Die Schlittenfahrt’


Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – German Dance No.3 in C-Major ‘Die Schlittenfahrt’, one of the most beautiful dance composed by Mozart, the “Sleigh Ride” is a tune a treasured all my life. I am happy to share it with you as a reminder that there is joy and happiness, and one can find it in the most uneventful activities, such as a sleigh ride, in the middle of winter: It’s fine and appropriate to be free, anywhere, anytime, and therefore, why not now, just join the ride, and see where it takes you.
