…But Mozart for Their Own Pleasure – I

The Angels sing Bach for God,
but Mozart for their own pleasure.

If anything could make me believe in the existence of a good and loving Creator it would be the music of Mozart.

  1. oh that was so nice. Although I loves me some Bach. The eldest daughter gets annoyed by Mozart. Says he’s overrated. I’m so playing this for her.

  2. Pamientam jak pojechalam z toba do Stratford….na moja piersza opere…..od tego czasu bardzo mie sie one podobaja….

  3. The “Canzonetta sull aria” is one of my faves as well. Though, I think my favorite recording is Te Kanawa and the late Lucia Popp. Regardless of favorites, it was just lovely to run across this, this afternoon.
