Miamiâ€™s New Chamber Orchestra
Seraphic Fireâ€™s Firebird Chamber Orchestra
Mozart & Salieri Concert
featuring the music from the award winning movie, Amadeus
Patrick Dupre Quigley and the Firebird Chamber Orchestra explore the rivalry between Mozart and Salieri, as portrayed in the Academy Award-winning movie Amadeus, this Sunday, January 18th, at 7 p.m. in the Knight Concert Hall at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts.
Sometimes colleagues, sometimes rivals, Mozart wrote to his wife that the when Salieri attended his Magic Flute there was “no piece that didn’t elicit a bravo or bellow out of him.” This concert culminates in Mozart’s Symphony No. 40, premiered at the suggestion of and later conducted by Salieri himself.
The evening will feature other amazing music, including Eine Kleine Nachtmusik and Exultate, Jubilate with special guest soprano Kathryn Mueller. Patrick Quigley will be your guide as you journey back in time to learn about the complex relationship between Mozart and Salieri. Johann Sebastian Bach, outliving one wife and twelve of his twenty-two children, experienced the passage from life to death constantly. His Cantata No. 82, Ich Habe Genug, is a stunning illustration of a soul gratefully leaving its earthly body. Bachâ€™s masterwork joins Schubertâ€™s Death and the Maiden on a double bill which examines the struggle, resignation and peace between this life and the next.
