About this course:

The last 10 years of this extraordinary artist's life (1782-1791), were perhaps his happiest and most productive. Symphonies, concertos, sonatas, and all manner of musical compositions poured forth. For this true man of the theater, it was the creation of four operas that brought personal delight to him and endless joy to the world: The Abduction from the Seraglio, The Marriage of Figaro, Don Giovanni and The Magic Flute. They deal with Forgiveness and Reconciliation, cover the breadth of human emotions and plumb the depths of the heart. This course explores this final decade in the all too brief life of the "Titan of Salzburg" through class discussion and video selections.
