Amadeus: Fact or Fiction?
Signature Chorale Music Director Aaron Beck takes you on an exploration of the fascinating life of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and shows how the 1984 Academy Award-winning movie Amadeus got it right – and very, very wrong. Could Mozart really speak backwards? Were Mozart and Salieri really arch enemies? Did music from Mozart’s Requiem really play over loudspeakers in the rain as his coffin was solemnly wheeled to the grave? (Okay – that one’s definitely not true.) Join us on a 45-minute journey through fantasy and reality and see how they intersect in our history of perhaps the greatest composer of all time.
