Mozart’s Requiem is one of the most remembered pieces in the history of music
Woof, woof, my friends. Here we are again to enjoy good music. Martin told me that today is Mozart’s birthday and I had to write something about the Austrian genius. Well, I need to remember to Martin that if I do it, he will have to go to play in the park today with me for 2 hours at least.
‘Have we got a deal, Martin?’
‘Mmmm, today is the match between F.C. Barcelona and Osasuna. I don’t want to miss it, Jack.’
‘Then… you won’t have your article, Martin. You don’t know a word about classical music!’
‘Well… It’s okay, Jack. Two hours. Deal, Jack’
(Note: it’s funny and bizarre to dialogue with myself.)
Woof, Woof again, my friends! Mozart is THE COMPOSER. Since the day he was born, he lived for music and his life was a life dedicated to music. He composed his first opera when he was a child and he is now considered a child prodigy and every time we talk about a genius we need to talk about him. I’m not 100% sure about all the facts in his biography but well, we have his music and his music is something magnificent. I have chosen his Requiem because it’s one of his most remembered pieces. My favorite? I don’t know. Is the Requiem more interesting than Don Giovanni? I don’t know. I think that Mozart is the best opera composer but I also admire Puccini and I can enjoy Verdi or Massenet. When we are talking about Mozart we are talking about the man who didn’t create the classicism but the man who represents the classicism. Beethoven is great and everybody knows it, but Mozart has something that always fascinate us, a mix among life, music, legend and, probably lies but… that’s art!
Have a great day, dear Yareah friends. Enjoy Mozart’s Requiem. You are the best!
