Subject: Mozarrt's birthday

Hi all!
With al the technical discussion we have had on 297b, cork grease etc,
we must come back to basics.
Tomorrow, January 27th, 1996 is Mozart's 240th birthday. Of all the
composers, Weber,
Mendelssohn,Copeland, Nielsen, Reicha, Reger, Brahms, Corigliano,
Bernstein, Schumann, Schubert,
etc. none was more the apotheosis for the instrument as a composer
than Mozart. The K498 trio, the
K581 quintet, the K622 concerto the K580 attributed quintet torsos
(torsi), the masonic music, the basset
clarinet and voices duets, the obbligato clarinet part in Clemenza di
Tito underscore the importance the
clarinet had to Mozart . he understood intimately, through Stadler's
playing and his own genius, the
clarinet's nuances and possibilities. Brazo Mozart and Happy Birthday
Johannes Wolfgangus Crisostomus
Theophilus Gottlieb Mozart (Amadeus was a late in life, ephemeral
sobriquet, actually Aamade).

All the best
