Do you remember the first time you heard Mozart? Or maybe his music is permanently tied to a moment in your life? 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"
