  1. On our car’s satellite radio yesterday we heard several pieces of music in a row by Mozart, and then the announcer mentioned it was Mozart’s birthday. It’s such a great loss to music that he died so young.

  2. Your images are breathtaking, Marina. So beautiful. And thank you for Wolfie. I have been listening to the music, catching up on my blog reading 😉 As I told your hubby, on his post, my ears always have time for Mozart.

  3. What a genius. Only 35 years when he died, and he left so very much!
    I like the musicians you picked playing his music!

    Sending love!

  4. Interesting – I know he is a great pianist and does classical, but I, of course, think of Chick Corea as a jazz keyboardist that plays a mean synthesizer.

Happy to hear your thoughts
