Great job, Bill. But again, I would expect nothing but excellence from you!! Absolute and exquisite beauty from our immortal child prodigy!! I must admit, tough, I had to list the Great Man as second to Beethoven when I was picking my 10 greatest composers on QXR 2 days ago. I am a power freak and Beethoven breathes more power, with no less beauty in his immortal adagios, I must admit. But for harmony and beauty, nobody beats Mozart!!
