Mozart's Ghosts

Mark Everist

Oxford University Press

Premieres and new productions of opera in the nineteenth century triggered arrangements for piano and other instrumental combinations; in addition, such events created an environment in which potpourris and fantasias based on recent operatic successes were attractive objects of creation and consumption. In the middle of the Second Empire, there were remarkably no less than three new productions of Don Giovanni in Paris in a single year: 1866 saw the appearance of the work at the Paris Opéra, the Théâtre Italien and the Théâtre Lyrique. No fewer than fifty arrangements for keyboard of excerpts from Don Giovanni were published in 1866 in Paris alone; this study of those arrangements permits a unique snapshot of the wide range of compositional and instrumental responses to the work.
