An Australian ensemble has “rediscovered” the sound of the bells that play a big part in Mozart’s “Magic Flute”–a sound which, it’s claimed, has been lost for generations.
How to be certain that this is the same sound that Mozart knew? …. Well, I suspect there’s a lot more scholarly research behind this than this article can go into. Meanwhile this instrument is fun to hear and to look at (check out the slide show and audio).
