Since we seem to be doing birthdays lets hear it for Mozart. I am not musical, or even musically knowledgeable, but for me Mozart hits a spot that nothing else does. I always liked his music, but my appreciation has increased dramatically as I have grown older. Someone said that he was God's greatest musical gift to the human race, and that may not be too far off the mark.
I heard some of the 24 hour TV broadcast this weekend, much of which was brilliant. I was most moved however by Daniel Barenboim and the West Eastern Divan Orchestra at Ramallah in Palestine. It is wonderful to see someone with a real faith that music can transform lives.
So happy 250th Birthday!
