Braunbehrens's worthy aim here is ""to provide a clear critical survey that might encourage the performance and study of. .Braunbehrens's framework is conventional biography

Braunbehrens's framework is conventional biography. Born in Italy and orphaned early, Salieri opted not to pursue a Neapolitan musical education, moving instead to Vienna under the tutelage of a generous Kapellmeister to Joseph II. Membership in the emperor's musical circle followed, as did the steady course of imperial preferment that Mozart later sought in vain.

Today Antonio Salieri is largely famous as Mozart's rival and, possibly, murderer. The play and movie Amadeus have revived the old legend. Rather few people also know Salieri's work, which only in recent years has begun to be performed again.In this first biography of Salieri in 160 years we discover that Salieri was one of the most important opera composers of his time; the success of several of his over forty operas was spectacular. In Vienna, where Beethoven, Schubert and Liszt were among his pupils, he was the most influential personage in the music world, and he was celebrated throughout Europe - from Naples to Copenhagen, and from Lisbon to Moscow.Braunbehrens examines the composer's life and carefully analyzes his relationship with Mozart, tracing the legends surrounding their relationship back to their sources and setting the record straight. We come to realize that only posterity placed Salieri in Mozart's shadow. The author also discusses in detail all of Salieri's operas, both the libretti and the music. With Maligned Master he has written an important document for everybody interested in the history of opera.

A very new copy. Love all the stories and anecdotes listed in this book. If you want to take a glimpse of Salieri's real life, this should be a great one. Salieri is more than just a so-called murderer, he is also one of the most brilliant composer in his time.

As it says in the subtitle, Volkmar Braubehrens's Maligned Master is "the real story of Antonio Salieri." Rumors in the early nineteenth century and fiction and historical fiction works by Pushkin and Peter Schafer, among others, have pointed the finger at Salieri as the murderer of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Hardly the "patron saint of mediocrity" that he is labeled in Schafer's Amadeus, Salieri actually was a leading composer of operas in his day, and highly regarded by the public, his patrons, and his peers. In this translation by Eveline Kanes, Braunbehrens presents Salieri's biography, provides the context for Salieri's compositions, and deals with the Mozart rumor. The work is well researched, although the translation's moves from the somewhat-pedantic to the near-colloquial do not always sound natural. We know Mozart, Haydn, and Beethoven, but getting to know Antonio Salieri certainly fills in more of the story of art music during the Classical era, and this is the book to fill in those gaps.
Ironrunner
This book is a long-overdue tribute to a much and unfairly maligned operatic genius of classical Italian music, who was one of Beethoven's teachers. The book contains not only a Salieri biography, but a detailed history of the opera in to Salieri's day and rightly regards him as the successor of Gluck's reform operas. The major fault of the book is that it will appeal mainly to musicians and musical historians rather than the general reader due to its over-technical nature with regard to some areas. Still, the best book about Salieri's life and art.
