On 7 February 1786 a memorable operatic contest took place in the
Orangery at Schönbrunn,
which the Emperor Joseph II himself initiated. The two opera
ensembles resident in Vienna were
to be judged: the Italian ‘court opera’ and the Singspiel troupe of
the German National Theatre.

The productions which resulted from this contest were Antonio
Salieri’s “Prima la musica e poi le
parole” and Mozart’s “Der Schauspieldirektor”. In Salieri’s opera
the process of composing is
depicted on the stage in music, making this divertimento teatrale a
gem in the genre of
metamelodrama. “Prima la musica e poi le parole” reveals the
composer Salieri not only at the
stylistic heights of the period, but also at the height of his
music-dramatical creativity. Salieri’s
opera stands up fully in comparison with Mozart’s “Der
Schauspieldirektor”.

The vocal score is based on the first Critical Edition of Salieri’s
best-known opera, edited by
Thomas Betzwieser.

- Practical performing vocal score

- Based on the first Critical Edition of the opera

- Foreword (German, English) by the editor of the  critical score
