Yesterday we wished Mozart a happy 259th birthday! To celebrate, Jean Stilwell has shared her top 3 favourite moments from Mozart’s musical legacy.
Cosi Fan Tutte – trio – Soave Sia Il Vento between Fiordalici, Dorabella and Don Alfonso – Mozart considered it to be his favourite trio. It’s beautiful.
Marriage of Figaro – ario – Voi Che Sapete – sung by Cherubino
(part role for mezzo sopranos) – so much fun, very popular aria
Symphony #25, opening movement –
used at the beginning of the film about Mozart – “Amadeus” – hauntingly beautiful music.
Jean Stilwell is co-host of The New Classical FM’s Good Day GTA, heard weekdays from 5:00 am – 10:00 am.
