Mozart in Film: Amadeus
Milos Forman’s 1984 fictionalized film concerning the life and music of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is often regarded as one of the greatest achievements in musical historiography. Despite its many historical inaccuracies, the film received 40 awards, including eight Academy Awards, fostering a renewed interest in the composer and his older contemporary, Antonio Salieri, the famous Viennese court composer who once claimed to have murdered Mozart. This course will examine Mozart’s life and music as it is portrayed in the film and discuss the artistic license taken by Forman. Students are strongly encouraged to view the film before the course.
