Mozart Just Because

One of the things Barth got right was starting each day with a piece from Mozart. I highly recommend it.

The Only Really Great Book Karl Barth Ever Wrote…

Was his little book on Mozart.

Nothing else Barth wrote even comes close.

Mozart Outsells Wretched Pop Musicians in 2016

mozart3Finally, a reason to have hope for humanity.  For a few seconds.

The top-selling music artists [sic!] of 2016 is [sic!] not who you’d expect. If you looked at the most popular songs today, it’s not Drake. He’s runner-up.  DRAKE: (Singing) You used to call me on my cell phone late night when you need my love – call me on my cell phone…  CORNISH: And it’s not Adele. She’s won 10 Grammys.  ADELE: (Singing) Hello from the other side.  ROBERT SIEGEL, HOST: It is Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

Some people have sense.  More than you would think, apparently.

Is this one. I can never listen to it without getting a tear in the eyes. And I’ve listened to it hundreds of times. Maybe thousands.

God Has Shown Us His Love Today: A Long Lost Mozart Score Has been Discovered

The Independent reports

The collaborative effort, a libretto, between Antonio Salieri and Mozart was found tucked away in the reserve collection of the Czech national museum, according to The Local.  “It’s a joint composition by Mozart and Salieri, a libretto by Lorenzo Da Ponte put to music,” Sarka Dockalova, the museum’s spokeswoman, told AFP.  Salieri, a key figure in the development of late 18th-century opera, was described by Mozart in various letters as a “favourite” Italian composer of the Emperor of the time, Joseph II, and his rival in musical terms.  “It’s a really valuable work […] long thought to have been lost,” said Ms Dockalova.

Oh boy!
