Sunday Mozart

“Mozart is the highest, the culminating point that beauty has attained in the sphere of music.” – Tchaikovsky

“Mozart’s music always sounds unburdened, effortless, and light. This is why it unburdens, releases, and liberates us.” – Karl Barth

“Mozart’s music is so beautiful as to entice angels down to earth.” – Franz Alexander von Kleist

“Mozart combines serenity, melancholy, and tragic intensity into one great lyric improvisation. Over it all hovers the greater spirit that is Mozart’s – the spirit of compassion, of universal love, even of suffering–a spirit that knows no age, that belongs to all ages.” – Leonard Bernstein
