250 Years of Mozart

Happy 250th Birthday Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart!

Three interesting books about his life. I am particularly interested in Mozart's Women: His Family, His Friends, His Music by Jane Glover. I recently read Marrying Mozart by Stephanie Cowell, an entertaining fictional account of Mozart's involvement with his wife's family. I think the non-fiction book about the women in his life will be very interesting.

Stories, music and background about Mozart from NPR.

He doesn't look a day over 220...
I'm going to check out the non-fiction book in the library. I've always been interested in Herr Mozart. The fiction I can do without.

In honour of his burfday, I really should dig out my old copy of Amadeus and Falco's Rock me Amadeus video (which I *do* have somewhere.)

I knew the anon comment was from you because of burfday before I even saw this one. :-) And I think I will watch Amadeus tonight, too. (Never did have Falco. Might have to see if that's on iTunes.)

I was thinking, "Wow, EVERYONE is posting about Mozart, I must be the only person alive who didn't know it was his bday today. Not to mention, how the HECK did everyone else know??"

Then I noticed the header on Google. ;)

I love the specialty headers on Google especially the ones for holidays.
