Umm, I have no idea what these two are about. Can you please elaborate?
Please elaborate Shapley. Obviously these figures are legendary because of their talent and/or persona... but are there any incredible stories that come to mind?

I was being flippant. I don't know of any legends surrounding them, I was just building on the title of the thread. They are, quite clearly, legends in classical music.

It is often thought that Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was the original writer of this melody. Reinforced by its appearance as a "correct answer" in the original edition of Trivial Pursuit and "Snapple Facts" (among others), many believe that the song was written by Mozart when he was four or five years old (as "Andante in C for Keyboard").
