We're Gonna Party Like It's Your 250th Birthday

Happy 250th birthday today, Mozart.

This serious picture really doesn't do the composer justice. He was a jokester and an all-around life-loving man. Check out this Mozart quote via Daniel Felsenfeld's blog :

"Heaven, Hell, and a thousand sacristies, Croatians damnations, devils, and witchies, druids, cross-Battalions with no ends, by all the elements, with air, water, earth, and fire, Europe, asia, affrica, and America, jesuits, Augustins, Benedictins, Capuchins, Minorites, Franciscans, Dominicans, Carthusians, and dignified Holy-Crucians, Canons regular and irregular, and all hairy brutes and snitches, higgledy-piggedly castrates and bitches, asses, buffaloes, oxen, fools, nitwits, and fops!"

- Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

I LOVE Mozart. The Dove Sono in Marriage of Figaro is my absolutely favorite piece of music.

PS. Going to see Don Giovanni with hubby in Feb. for Valentines Day. I am SOO excited.

Ooooh, lucky you! That sounds awesome. :) I too love Mozart. One of my favorite things to do is read through his violin sonatas with my best friend.
