Wishing the happiest of birthdays to Johannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Theophilus Mozart who was born 254 years ago today. I was searching for something appropriate to play - you know something that showed the depth and enduring humanity of the man and his music and came up with his variations on this little tune:
Hey Wolfie enjoyed a joke as much, if not more, than the next guy (and no he wasn't quite the vulgarian we see in Amadeus, its a movie!)and his music is shot through with humour and a great love of life. And in this performance Fazil Sayby performs it that way.
Happy Birthday Wolfie, you don't sound a day older!
