W.A., the one and only

...that would be Mozart, whose 250th anniversary is today. Mozart trivia for today: he was baptized as "Johannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Theophilus". I guess Amadeus sounded better than Theophilus, while conveying the same idea. In any case, as they say, if Mozart didn't exist, he should have been invented -- he's up at the top in my Classical Music Hall of Fame. I like a quote from an article in today's L.A. Times: "As pianist Artur Schnabel observed, Mozart is too easy for children and too difficult for artists."
