Amazing Amadeus

Mozart in Verona, 1770

Today is W.A. Mozart’s birthday.  Mozart remains unequaled in his output of compositions, from exquisite solo piano and chamber music to larger works including concertos, symphonies, oratorios and operas.  Over six hundred pieces in just a 35 year life span.  Even more amazing is that just to copy his music by hand would take an average human lifetime.

Part of the beauty and charm in his music is its lyricism and playability.  However, true artistry is necessary to communicate it effectively.

Happy Birthday, Wolfie.

  1. Celebrated Mozart’s birthday with JoAnn Falletta and the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra at Kleinhans this morning. It was a wonderful concert and tribute to one of the greatest musicians of all time. Life is good!
