It is the 25oth anniversary of Mozart's birth. Some years ago I bought the Complete Mozart on CD. I am having fun playing them again. I started with the piano concertos and I am listening to K467 (# 21) as I am writing this. I find that I am more organized and clearer thinking when Mozart is playing.I came to classical music while I was at University. I shared lodgings with a man ccalled Richard Osborne who went on to be editor of the Gramaphone magazine. A later flat mate was a Bob Dylan enthusiast. He also introduced me to French movies. I'm not sure that my medical school was all that good, but my University course taught me a lot about what it meant to be a human being.
