On Friday, Nov. 1, WQXR kicks off Month of Mozart, a celebration of the composer who has racked up more recordings than any other — nearly 10,000 — created masterpieces in every genre he attempted, and who today is sampled by rock stars and rap artists and on movie soundtracks and video games.

"I find myself glad to be alive, overjoyed to be in the same world with such sounds." — Scott Burnham, in his book "Mozart Grace"

About Month of Mozart

Mozart is arguably the most admired and most adapted composer in the history of Western music. He has the most recordings (nearly 10,000 in print and has been referenced endlessly in popular culture. His life has been filtered through many theories of genius and creativity – some plausible, others outlandish. Unlike many composers, Mozart has never gone out of fashion, in part because his music has come to stand for so many aspects of classical music. Throughout November, WQXR celebrates Mozart's work through concert broadcasts, multimedia projects, marathons and other features.
