A discovery of world importance!

The composition Per la Ricuperata Salute di Offelia has been discovered in the collection of the Department of Music History in the National Museum - Czech Museum of Music.

A rare print, until now considered lost, has been discovered in the collection of the Department of Music History in the National Museum - Czech Museum of Music. It is a libretto by the court poet in Vienna, Lorenzo Da Ponte, with a score, entitled Per la Ricuperata Salute di Offelia. The libretto was set to music in autumn 1785 by Antonio Salieri - the court composer of Italian origin - Wolfgang Amadeum Mozart, and Cornetti. The composition was heard perhaps the first time at a press conference at the Czech Museum of Music, performed by the harpsichordist Lukáš Vendl.
