[ Sony Classical / 2 CD ]
Release Date: Tuesday 23 April 2019
The professional competition between Mozart and Salieri has been a well-documented topic. It even became subject of the Oscar-winning film Amadeus.
Now, a new album of compositions by the two is here to provide a side-by-side comparison of the works of both composers. Christian Benda leads the Prague Sinfonia Orchestra in a musical journey, from Mozart's Don Giovanni opera overture, to Salieri's overture to Les Danaides.
This album gives a musical backdrop to what is still to this day, a mysterious rivalry in music history.
Includes "Prague" and "Haffner" symphony and an unknown Mozart work that was discovered in 2015.
