Wunderkind Little Amadeus

Shooting Stars

Season 1, Episode 20 of 26

The children want to sled next to the river on a snowy winter day in Salzburg. Pumperl hops onto a piece of floating ice and drifts away. A dramatic rescue operation ensues with help from Mario and a few unpopular boys from the neighborhood. They eventually locate Pumperl with a telescope, which the Bishop later intends to use to view hundreds of shooting stars. The weather doesn't cooperate, but Amadeus once again enchants the assembled company with his music. The Music: "Piano Sonata in D" (Duernitz) K. 284; "Divertimento in D" K. 136; "Qui tollis" from the "C Minor Mass" K. 427; et al. Additional Content: Amadeus named three symphonies after his hometown. This segment highlights the famous "Salzburg Symphonies" using scenes from the series in which they appear. Monti explains why this music fit well within the scenes.
