Move along now...nothing to see here.......

I happen to possess (and have read) the complete set of Mozart's letters. The bloke was quite a nutter (albeit a good hearted and generous nutter) Not quite such a nutter as people like to think, though, as scatalogical humour was pretty common then.

The music is something else................

BBC broadcast a superb "Marriage of Figaro" a few days ago (2006 production from Covent Garden) Stupendous! :)
