Out from the Shadows: In the spotlight: Virtuosi eclipsed by genius

Salieri, Requiem

Kuhnau, Magnificat

Church of the Holy Name

1689 Centre Street, West Roxbury, MA 02132

Antonio Salieri was one of Europe’s most renowned composers during his lifetime, though his reputation has long since been overshadowed by his contemporary, Mozart. Johann Kuhnau, who preceded J.S. Bach as music director of Thomaskirche in Leipzig, was a highly regarded composer of keyboard and sacred music in his time. While Mozart’s Requiem and Bach’s Magnificat have become cherished staples of the choral canon, these corresponding works by their contemporaries are virtually unknown. Come hear a rare performance of these unjustly overlooked masterworks by two remarkable composers.
