Notes and Editorial Reviews

Since Milos Forman’s film “Amadeus” at the very latest, legends and conspiracy theories have been known to one and all. Salieri’s artistic quality has been overshadowed, but he did indeed contribute significantly to the glory of the Viennese opera.

Mozart had to exert himself, and he did so with success. For the Viennese production of his Idomeneo, which he composed during his Munich residence just prior to moving to the Austrian capital, he reworked some parts of it and added new music.

Douglas Boyd teases colors of the greatest tenderness out of his orchestra in the “Six Ländler Dances” from the last years of Mozart’s life, and on this lovingly produced double SACD they shine in all their great splendor.

 New Salieri appreciation September 28, 2019 By Paul Brunson (Arvada, CO) See All My Reviews "This 2 CD set is very well recorded in SACD. Some of the Mozart pieces I recognized, but the Salieri pieces were new to me - I thoroughly enjoyed them both! I will now review the Arkiv SACD list and see if I can locate any other Salieri recordings." Report Abuse
