Hello and welcome to AMozartADay! You are following a blog dedicated to the music of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, so if nothing else I know you have good taste. But I think you are all fantastic!
This journey is going to be a long one: there is no denying that. For two years we will work through every phase of Mozart’s life and music, discovering his influences, proclivities, and genius.
As you can see, today is the 6th day of this project. This blog and Mozart himself are still incredibly young at this stage. Grow with us! Come along and listen to things of unparalleled joy, sorrow, wit, and beauty.
Since I can remember, I have had very, very particular expectations for the performers of Mozart. I hope this comes across in the recordings I choose to post on this blog. They will be the best I can find in the depths of the internet, and where they fail I will mention it. As you can see, so far we have only heard harpsichords and fortepianos as far as keyboards go. This will always be the case if 1) a recording with such instruments exists and 2) it gives a worthy interpretation. If ever there is a recording which you do not like, please tell me, and I will work to correct the problem.
You are noble people, all of you. You strive to know what it is to be human. Through the next 626 Köchel numbers, I think we can do it.
