I could do something with that plot. A change here and there, of
course, to personalize it, but it could work. For a cadenza, I
would suggest a complete performance of "10000 Bottles of Beer on
the Wall." It could work.

Subject: [kl] Murder on the Mozart Express

On adding to the repeats in the Mozart Quintet, Dan writes: >>Now
if you
want to waste that opportunity by adding the melody of "When the
Saints
Go Marchin In," be my guest, but you won't live out the day.<<

Archie Camden recorded the Mozart Bassoon Concerto, singing and
dancing
through it in a way that's irresistible even today. He added a
BIG
(2-minute) cadenza in the finale, including the first 8 bars of
The
Marriage of Figaro Overture. Not quite as odd as putting in a
bit of
The Saints, and the Bassoon Concerto is no K. 622, but all part
of the
fun.

I'm thinking of writing Murder on the Mozart Express. The
villain finds
the manuscript of K. 622 and claims it's really for contrabassoon
(just
like the bass part in the Grand Partoottsie [which is the true
spelling]). He also inserts a cadenza that cross-cuts between
The
Saints, Ibert's modernist one and Terry Riley's "In C" transposed
into A
and repeated 7,362 times. On repeat 4,012, he's sliced to death
with
stale pizzas, studded with specially sharpened reeds, which Dan
has been
saving all these years.
