“It’s a really valuable work, long thought to have been lost,” said Czech National Museum spokeswoman Sarka Dockalova, at a press conference announcing the discovery of a long-lost Mozart (1756-1791) composition found in a reserve collection inside a vault of a Prague museum. The piece is a collaboration between Mozart and Antonio Salieri (1750-1825), which is fascinating for two reasons: 1) for the music itself, and 2) the discovery casts doubt on the theory that Salieri may have helped poison Mozart who died at the young age of 35.
