another great show. it is like music school,only better.Mozart is incomparable- like no other. the music is divinely inspired, and inspiring.
Mozart was and is,and always will be,the anecdote for "cililization" and makes us wish life wasn't so short. For him,it was just half a life,but has
become immortal. this program is a tribute to that fact.

I love your programs! It's like going to music school,just more interesting. Most of the time I try to be home by 10 pm not to miss a show! I've recently found a great book on the topic you are addressing this week: Mozart in Vienna, by Volkmar Braunbehrens, translated from German, published here in 1990. It's very well researched and a very good read. Last year I read the biography of DaPonte, Librettist of Venice, it was fascinating. I wonder if there are any recordings of operas by other composers for whom he wrote libretti, like Vicente Martin Y Soler? Thanks!

Yes. Yes, Yes! This is great. I love Mozart almost as much as I love Handel,so this is the cake, icing and all. Do one on Handel and Haydn soon. Thank you.
