A Singspiel in two acts to a libretto by Emanuel Schikaneder, Die Zauberflöte was first performed in Vienna at the Theater auf der Wieden on 30 September 1791. It proved to be one of Mozart's most popular and enduring works.

Michael Gotthard Fischer (1773-1829), the arranger of the present work, was a student of J.S. Bach's pupil J.C. Kittel. He was the organist of the Predigerkirche in Erfurt, where the German Romantic composer and organist August Gottfried Ritter (1811-1885) was one of his pupils.
