Salieri

Audio will be available later today.

Antonio Salieri had the career Mozart wanted to have: Salieri held the highest court position in the most powerful dynasty in Europe, and he was revered and respected. But history has not treated him kindly. The Luxembourg Philharmonic plays Salieri's Sinfonia to his opera Falstaff, in Luxembourg's Grand Auditorium at the Philharmonie. Hubert Soudant conducts.
