The new season will open with a special concert, narrated by Hawai`i's most watched newscaster. Poor Antonio Salieri: defamed and slandered in the Oscar-winning film "Amadeus" as Mozart's mediocre, jealous rival, who was obsessed with destroying him. Actually, Salieri was nothing like that. He was one of the most respected, talented, and successful composers of his day, who wrote music of considerable charm, approaching the level of genius. In his time Salieri's operas were more popular than Mozart's. Hosted by KHON2 news anchorman and Mozart aficionado, Joe Moore, this concert features the Spring Wind Octet performing both Salieri's and Mozart's music, including the USA premiere of Johann Wendt's arrangements from Salieri's opera 'La Grotta di Trofonio.' Between musical pieces, Mr. Moore will offer commentary on the true relationship between Salieri and Mozart, which was unlike that depicted in the film.
