Overture to the Abduction from the Seraglio


  • Interesting, worth a look

Our Description

The Overture to the Abduction from the Seraglio comes from the opera that was probably Mozart's most popular during his lifetime. The opera itself has some of the most brilliant and demanding music Mozart ever wrote and the overture is no exception. Most of the parts are quite demanding right down to the bass instruments. This arrangement is done for piccolo, Eb flute (alternate C flute part included), 3 C flutes, alto flute, bass flute and contrabass flute. The contrabass flute part is optional, though it does provide the depth of the string basses.

Difficulty guide: 5-6
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
