Mozart - Making a Living
In this edition which we call “Making a Living,” we explore some dance parties and outdoor social works by the 16-year old Mozart.
In today’s world, we turn on the radio or listen to Classical Music Discoveries on our devices using the Podomatic app or some other favorite app and we think nothing of it. Any type of music is just there to listen to while you work or play.
But in Mozart’s day, if you wanted to listen to music, the only option you had was to hire musicians and maybe even a composer to write something special for your occasion.
So, in “Making a Living” we explore some of Mozart’s music-for-hire.
