Amadeus

Mozart Requiem 
Salieri De Profundis
Kraus Requiem


Composed during the last days of his life, Mozart’s Requiem moves from tragic resignation in its opening to the fierce vigor of the “Dies Irae” and finally the intense pleading of the “Lacrimosa,” the movement left unfinished at his death.

Antonio Salieri, depicted in the movie Amadeus as Mozart’s nemesis, actually composed some extremely beautiful music, none more so than De Profundis. A simple, pure soprano chant gradually builds to a grandiose conclusion with full orchestra and chorus.

Virtually unknown, Joseph Martin Kraus’s Requiem provides a striking contrast to Mozart’s—lighter but equally haunting. The German Kraus later worked in Sweden, becoming known as the Swedish Mozart.

The Tsar's Bride

The Tsar's Bride

A tantalizing piece of historical fiction, Rimsky-Korsakov’s “The Tsar’s Bride” imagines the brief, unhappy courtship of Ivan the Terrible and his third wife, Marfa, who, in accordance with Romantic dramaturgy, promptly goes insane. Even though it was composed less than two decades before the Russian Revolution, the opera largely exonerates the Tsar of foul play, using the subject matter as an excuse for opulent music rather than as a call to arms. Doug Fitch’s semi-staging closes the Bard Music Festival on Aug. 19, at the Fisher Center for the Performing Arts, in Annandale-on-Hudson, N.Y. It splits the difference between a concert and a full production—the orchestra is in the pit, but some of the singers carry their scores onstage, while the English translation is projected behind them—giving the lie to an account that was never really true to begin with.
