Mozart, W. A. - Mio caro Adone, KV 180/173c - Theme - Video

"Mio caro Adone, KV 180/173c" by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is a set of 6 variations originally composed for piano, on a theme "Mio caro Adone" (my dear Adonis) from three-act opera buffa "La fiera di Venezia" by Antonio Salieri.

Arranged by N. Coste - Livre d'Or du Guitariste, op. 52 - No. 27, for the "Héptacorde", 7-string early romantic guitar. I've slightly adjusted the arrangement to be playable on a 6-string guitar.

So pretty. Thanks for introducing me to this music.

I remember Salieri in the movie Amadeus, always jealous of Mozart. I guess this would be an example of a Salieri theme Mozart improved upon.

Wonderful Marek! Great playing and a beautiful transcription. Amazing how well Mozart translates to the guitar.

Awesome! This works really nicely as a very romantic piece for guitar. If you said it wasn't by Mozart and was just by Coste, I'd probably believe it.

There's an album and collection of scores by Martin Hegel that's very nice along a similar vein, this gets me excited about looking at that eventually!

Yes, I saw that one too... and used reference to the film when I've introduced this piece in my last recital. Although, a good portion of the script is fiction, including "how bad" their rivalry was. I'm in no way a specialist on the topic, but https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antonio_S ... ith_Mozart

I looked that up out of curiosity as well, after I saw that movie.
It's perhaps a little disappointing that so many historical liberties were taken with the story, but it was still a very good movie! No surprise that it won awards.
