3. I own a number of CD's of Salieri's music.

He wrote themes that both Mozart and Beethoven were not shy about borrowing and adapting into their own works. He was a pretty good composer.

I once asked former Seattle Opera General Director Speight Jenkins if he thought there would ever be a revival of Salieri's numerous operas. Jenkins said no.

"Why?" I asked.

"Because they're boring!"

I guess Jenkins was wrong about the revival.
