How Gave Mozart the Bird?
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart? Composer, Salzburg, Serenade in G (Da dam dada, da dam dada). What else do you know about Mozart?
Was he wet-nursed? A football player? A friend of Winnetou? Did anyone ever give him the bird? And was the bird a music whiz? Did Mozart have milk with his coffee? Prefer wine or beer? Were his feet really as small as a lady’s? Has he ever had potato salad with his Wiener Schnitzel? Why did he have nine trousers, nine shirts and a fur coat when he died as a poor man?
You have no idea? Well, seems like the Mozart Anniversary Year did not have the slightest effect on you! Luckily, Kurt Palm and his collection of 47 pieces, illustrated by Tex Rubinowitz, make a perfect Da Capo. This is your last chance. Take it!
To Mozart’s 251st Birthday Palms columns still haven’t lost any of there wit or subtleness.
It’s finally there: the ultimate work of information about Wolfgang Amadeus M.
Deliciously comical, informative and just a touch dispensable…
Kurt Palm, a columnist with a preference for the fascinating different point of view, has, over the past year, regularly written Mozart comments for an Austrian daily newspaper. This selection clearly shows that the negligibility’s can also have a significant meaning. Here, we see the man behind the genius.
