Happy Birthday Wolfie!

I would be remiss if I forgot that today is Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s birthday! He was born 254 years ago, just two years before President James Monroe. The “Colonies” were just beginning to knit together into something that twenty years later would be a grand and glorious embodiment of liberty.

A little Dame Kiri (in what Salieri called “perfect absolution”) for the day…

Here is the scene from Amadeus…

F. Murray Abraham’s Salieri is such a study in bitterness. He’d made a great 2010 Democrat.

    Thanks for the reminder! WFMT in Chicago honors the occasion by playing all Mozart all day. Listen here: http://www.wfmt.com/main.taf?p=4,5,9#streamlinks
