Inbal Megiddo and Jian Liu play the 12 variations on Ein Mädchen oder Weibchen by Beethoven.

These delightful variations on a popular aria from Mozart’s The Magic Flute capture the playfulness of the original: the humble bird-catcher Papageno is on the lookout for a wife or girlfriend.

Inbal Megiddo (cello) and Jian Liu (piano)

Recorded 1 May 2016, St Andrew's on the Terrace, Wellington by RNZ Concert
