Mozart

Mozart

Audio will be available later today.

Pianist Shai Wosner joins in the Mozart madness with a set of somewhat wacky variations that Mozart supposedly composed at a party, when he noticed Christoph Willibald Gluck in the audience. He based the variations on a tune by Gluck. It's K. 455 by Mozart, played live in NPR's Studio 4A.
