Mozart and salieri
March 18, 2023 // 7:30pm
Lima Symphony Chorus
Immortalized in both book and film, Mozart and Salieri come to life once again on the concert stage – not in competition but in complement. The first half of the program highlights the cosmopolitan and refined Salieri, a composer whose fame and recognition have often been overshadowed by Mozart’s vivacious and prodigious talent. Finishing the evening is Mozart’s final prophetic accomplishment: a Requiem mass. Left unfinished upon his own untimely death, this mysterious work remains one of the most powerful and profound in the classical music canon.
