About

Salieri as a composer is almost forgotten but some attempts in the past years to revive his music have been extraordinarily successful (for example: Cecilia Bartoli, Riccardo Muti or Diana Damrau). This fact is not at all surprising since Salieriís operas were counted among the greatest masterworks in their day.

When Thomas Fey and the musicologist and composer Timo Jouko Herrmann discovered their mutual interest in the composer, they embarked upon a journey of discovery, to explore and revive some of Salieriís long-forgotten masterworks.

Their first results are presented here, featuring recordings of previously unedited and unpublished scores of Salieriís overtures and ballet music.

World premiere recordings of:
- Daliso e Delmita (1776) Overture
- Pafio e Mirra ossia I prigionieri di Cipro (1778)
- Der Rauchfangkehrer (1781) Overture
- Catilina (1790-92) Overture

World premiere recording of the original version of:
- Les Horaces (1786) Overture
