Mozart's Birthday

Postby classicalfan » Mon Jan 29, 2007 11:10 am

This past Saturday was the birthday of Mozart. How did you celebrate it? Did you listen to a particular piece of music or find a different way to honor the birth of this great man?

I spent the evening listening to Respighi and Bizet.

But then, I didn't know it was Mozart's birthday until I read the Ahem thread...

I did it up right.

My weekend consisted of:

Listening to Haffner and Prague.
Saw a production of Don Giovanni.
Then watched the Director's Cut of Amadeus.
8)

Threw a little wine and dinner in there to boot. Excellent weekend. Next week it is all about Beer and Brats for the Superbowl though!! :flex:

Listened to one of Mozart's string quartets, and read some more of my Mozart biography book.

I heard some of the Jupiter Symphony during a car trip to somewhere. 251 and still looking like he's in his 30s. Go figger.

I listened to a musically-typical 2.5 yr old, and gained an entirely new insight and appreciation for the uniqueness of Mozart's abilities. An appreciation I mentioned to OT.
Altoid - curiously strong.

Should make one admire Charlotte Church, too, no?
