Happy Birthday, Wolfie

Today marks the 250th anniversary of the birth of Mozart. Understandably, cities all over Europe and the United States are celebrating in various ways. I've never been a particularly huge fan of Mozart's work - I prefer more modern orchestral music. But his genius, influence, and staying power cannot be ignored. And the man did give the world its first clarinet concerto, with which I wrestled for many years (I lost).
