In this broadcast, which we call “Real or Fake,” we explore Mozart’s “Missa Brevis in G Major, K. 140”

Although this mass is accepted as genuine, there is no proof this Mass was composed by Mozart.

Evidence against this being composed by Mozart are:

1. No signature page exists to show who composed this work

2. Even though this Mass was composed immediately following the completion of “Lucio Silla”, the composition is far too simplistic for Mozart at this time in his life

3. Most importantly, the original manuscript, has corrections on it. Although the corrections were written in Mozart’s own hand, the original manuscript is NOT in Mozart’s hand. Either the original manuscript was the work of Mozart and copied by someone other than Leopold Mozart (which alone, is unheard of), or this composition was written by someone else entirely. Also, corrected errors are very unusual as Mozart’s manuscripts never had corrections! Each composition by Wolfgang was completed without any errors, just as described in the movie “Amadeus.”

So, we leave it up to you to decide is this composition a real work by Mozart, or is it fake?

TRIPTYCH REVELATION, composer Sergio Cervetti’s seventh album with Navona, presents works from across four decades of his extensive career. Though a fair bit of time separates these pieces, the album’s three works all feature unique explorations of apocalyptic themes, inspired by themes drawn from the New Testament, nineteenth century French literature, and Flemish art of the sixteenth century.

Mozart’s “Lucio Silla” K.135 is an Italian opera in 3 acts composed by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

The opera was first performed on December 26, 1772 and the success of the opera is widely contested. Many music historians consider the opera to have been a “moderate success, “ however, in letters written by Mozart he considered the opera to be a great success and states that he was “basking in the success” of his opera for many months.

The story of “Lucio Silla” concerns the Roman dictator Lucius Sulla who lusts after Giunia, the daughter of his enemy Gaius Marius. Of course, Giunia, loves the exiled senator Cecilio instead.

This production is performed by the CMD Grand Opera Company of Venice and is conducted by Joana Filipe Martinez.

On their Navona debut AGE OF INDULGENCE, early music ensemble Les Délices presents an exquisite compendium of unique and rare instrumental music from the last generation of French Baroque composers. The album’s repertoire shines a spotlight on lesser-known – yet powerfully skilled – composers active in the most important circles of mid- and late-eighteenth century Parisian musical society.

The final opera in our Wagner Opera Series, sponsored by Flowers.FM

Parsifal is an opera in three acts by German composer Richard Wagner. It is loosely based on Parzival by Wolfram von Eschenbach, a 13th-century epic poem of the Arthurian knight Parzival and his quest for the Holy Grail.
Wagner first conceived the work in April 1857 but did not finish it until twenty-five years later. It was Wagner's last completed opera and in composing it he took advantage of the particular acoustics of his Bayreuth Festival. Parsifal was first produced at the second Bayreuth Festival in 1882. The Bayreuth Festival maintained a monopoly on Parsifal productions until 1903, when the opera was performed at the Metropolitan Opera in New York.

Wagner described Parsifal not as an opera, but as "A Festival Play for the Consecration of the Stage.” At Bayreuth a tradition has arisen that there be no applause after the first act of the opera.

This performance is by the CMD German Opera Company of Berlin and conducted by Kenneth Hedgecock.
