There is only one Mozart and there is only one God.

You are so right there, Poulenc (nice name), are you familiar with Francis Poulenc's music. Back to Mozart. When I was kid, I tried to find recordings of all the K. numbers. I would go to the library and check out albums or CDs and record them. I never quite made it then - but after I started making money I just bought the complete Mozart on Philips. Any favorites?

I won't butcher the title here so i'll just say "A Little Night Music" but there are so many more.

"Eine Kleine Nachtmusik" - a very excellent choice. I've read some of your other posts, yer daddy, and wasn't expected to see you in a classical music category. Well done!

A lot of people say that. I'm not all bad, i just play one on TV. I'm gonna do a little crossing over here, have you all seen "Immortal Beloved" It's not about Mozart but still one of the greatest scenes ever in a movie is the one where Beethoven's conducting the 9th and it's showing you the whole thing with his father and the lake and the stars. Incredible. And of course "Amadeus" is equally great movie.

Immortal Beloved didn't quite do it for me on a whole. The history was too sketchy (but it's a movie, right). But I must agree that the moment at the end when he's laying on the stars... a truly great moment.

A few inaccuracies didn't hurt the movie for me. I loved it, especially the soundtrack. I wish we did it. We don't do a lot films at Manka that require a classical score.

It's one of the greatest soundtracks ever made. Drove through hail in Donner Pass without blinking an eye with that music on and it made it seem like a beautiful day. Another composer that i like is Preisner, he did a lot of stuff for Kyslowski. Sorry to keep changing the subject. OK Mozart, i love his Jupiter Symphony. And there's Mostly Mozart every night on 105.1 although it's sort of weird to hear his name so frequently ever since they changed the call letters.

Yes, the Jupiter Symphony... oh, yes... I've been listening to a lot of his wind chamber music lately, octet for winds, wind quarter in D... Walking around with walkman on listening to Mozart takes a bit of the ennui out of living in Paris.

You want relief from boredom? Try just avoiding the dog crap on the sidewalks.

It was so easy for him to be brilliant. If you read anything about Mahler it was a struggle just get one note on the page - Mozart could composed like he was copying notes from another score. It was so easy.

I have so neglected you, classical music lovers! I've been out of town (there's big drama going on at Manka Music but I can't talk about it). Anyway, I apologize (for about the thousandth time).

So, yes... I agree with you Saint_Saens. Mozart was music. Music to him was breathing. Mahler was tortured. Every note was indeed painful. Your namesake, Saint_Saens was quite the showman. He whipped off hundreds of compositions as though it was something to do before dinner. He wrote many classic pieces but it was more of a game to him. He loved power and writing music and having it performed to the swooning salons of Paris gave him power.

Hey, welcome back, Emily. Just to add to that. Saint-Saens to me is like Andrew Lloyd Webber. He just cranked it out and got paid. Mozart cranked it - it was brilliant - and he didn't get paid. At first Saint Saens was considered an enfant terible but he only used that to get popular. He quickly adapted to write what the old ladies in the salon wanted.
