Palmetto Chamber Orchestra presents a program “Mozart and Salieri”- two Classical contemporaries but with two different faiths. A famous dichotomy between two 18 century contemporaries: poor vs. rich, brilliance vs. mediocrity, fame vs. oblivion.... or maybe NOT? Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart vs. Antonio Saileri. Was Salieri such a horrible person and a mediocre and unsuccessful composer or Mozart simply outshined everyone around him? Did Salieri “kill” Mozart out of jealousy or it is a legend that was never proven to be true? Why music of Mozart is played daily and we never hear music by Salieri? A story told through music you do not want to miss.
