Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart has been one of my favorite composers for years, especially after I watched Milos Foreman's brilliant film Amadeus, a wonderful adaptation of Peter Shaffer's stage play.
While the story and the performances by F. Murray Abraham (Antonio Salieri) and Tom Hulce (W. A. Mozart) were enthralling, the true star of the movie was, of course, Mozart's beautiful and timeless music, and no wonder, for the music supervisor (and conductor) for Amadeus was none other than one of the best interpreters of Mozart's compositions, Sir Neville Marriner.
In this wonderful two-disc set of the original soundtrack, Marriner leads the acclaimed Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields orchestra in 20 excerpts from various symphonies, piano concertos, operas, and Mozart's final opus, the Requiem.
Disc One begins with the first movement of Mozart's Symphony No. 25 in G minor, K 183, a very dramatic and energetic work which foreshadows the emotionally charged compositions of Beethoven (who was a student of Mozart's) and other composers of the Romantic era. Composed when Mozart was only 17 years old, it is the first symphony he wrote in a minor key. Sweeping and almost stormy at times, it is an apt accompaniment to the film's "I killed Mozart!" opening sequence.
Among the other eight tracks on this first disc are excerpts from Giovanni Pergolesi's "Stabat Mater," early 18th Century Gypsy music played on instruments of the period, and more Mozart works ranging from opera (the Turkish Finale from The Abduction from the Seraglio) to the first movement from Symphonie Concertante, K 364.
Disc Two contains 11 tracks, including the beautiful third movement of the Piano Concerto in E flat, masterfully played by pianist Ivan Moravec and the Academy of St.

I like this CD for the sheer variety in styles. It starts with the popular'n'bouncy "Symphony No:25" and later melts into the slow and soothing "Stabat Mater" (considered as the pick of Pergolesi's music). From there it kick-starts into the energetic "18th century gypsy music" (Bubak and Hungaricus). This one just keeps me thrilled with the intricate variations that just go on like a roller-coaster ride that at the end of it you wish it had lasted longer.
This also has Mozart's only concerto for two pianos which is soothing and delicate where the orchestra keeps a distance and lets the piano take over. No wonder when I saw a web-site recommending this piece of music to students for improving their concentration.
The rest of the CD contains operactic songs (in German?) - "Mass in C Minor", "Marriage of Figaro". All of them are splendid. The booklet (songlist) made interesting reading about Mozart's life. A truly marvelous collection of some of the maestro's best. Worth every buck you pay for it.

This is the best Mozart CD anyone can purchase. The selections show a progression through his career and the various styles he used. The best selection by far, is the Requiem Mass, in my opinion, the Lachrymosa section. It will bring tears to your eyes with its sweet melodies and violin arpeggios. The only glaring omission from the film is the aria from The Escape From the Seraglio, "Marten Aller Arten". It is a wonderful example of coloratura. All in all, you must have this if you are a Mozart aficianado

Format: Audio CD
Eventhough many kids in school listen to rap and all, I listen to classical. After watching Amadeus, I was moved by the pieces selected to be played in the film. I especially liked Symphony No. 29 1st Movement. Also, when Salieri is at the Archbishop of Salzburg's palace and reads Mozart's piece, Serenade for Winds, is among my favorites. In Serenade for Winds, Mozart creates a very emotional and almost night music feel to it. I was surprised that the director/conductor did not put in a few more famous pieces into the album . . . ex. Symphony No. 40, The Magic Flute, etc. This is an excellent album and anyone who wants to enjoy the genius of Mozart should purchase this. Take it from me, you will enjoy this album immesensely.

What better way to be introduced to the wonders of Classical Music than to listen to this superb selection of mostly Mozart works?
The film Amadeus does very well in capturing emotions expressed by Mozart's diverse compositions. This soundtrack in turn succeeds in making the listener conjure up scenes from Amadeus as well as images of 18th century Vienna.
From melancholic to playful and romantic to firey, it will be difficult to match the prefection with which Sir Neville Mariner and The Academy of St Martin-In-The-Fields have assembled this compilation.

Not being very interested in classical music, this really opened my eyes to the sheer beauty of classical music. It really is awe-inspiring, and the composer of such brilliant music is no less than a genius. This recording is masterfully done, taking on a very strong stand, especially in the Requiem Mass. Mozart would be proud. A fantastic movie, and a fantastic soundtrack

The Soundtrack of "Amadeus" presents the whole genius, master work of the great composer of all time. It is hard to say which music is the best, but all we can say is that it is music to listen, love, and appreciate forever, during your entire life. And the next, and the next, and the next! A truly pleasure to listen to.
