Rock me, Amadeus

I missed blogging about the 300th anniversary of Ben Franklin’s birthday, so I knew I couldn’t miss today. What’s today?
Today is the 250th anniversary of the birthday of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. While Tom and I agree that Bach is the better composer (and I would rate Handel better, as well), Mozart’s body of work is quite an accomplishment, given what he produced before his death at the age of 35. There are composers today, living in to their eighties, who do not produce music with the depth and scope that Mozart did.
