Happy Birthday Wolfgang
9:50 AM –
Johannes Chrisostomos Wolfgang Gottlieb Mozart is 250 years old today. Some inadequate tributes:
Mozart is the greatest composer of all. Beethoven "created" his music, but the music of Mozart is of such purity and beauty that one feels he merely "found" it – that it has always existed as part of the inner beauty of the universe waiting to be revealed.
— Albert Einstein
Mozart is happiness before it has gotten defined.
— Arthur Miller
In my dreams of Heaven, I always see the great Masters gathered in a huge hall in which they all reside. Only Mozart has his own suite.
— Victor Borge
To hear his music is to feel one has accomplished some good deed.
— Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky
Do a good deed today.
