    Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

    Post  George on Thu 10 May 2018, 11:39

    Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756–91) was born in Salzburg, Austria – and was baptized as Johannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Theophilus Mozart.


    This is something I first learned in 1984 and remembered ever since. Therefore I knew something Stephen Fry did not in the Christmas episode of Series B of QI.

    A moment ago, I enjoyed listening to the Amatis Piano Trio perform Mozart’s Piano Trio in B-flat major, KV 502, in “Lunchtime Concert” with Clemency Burton-Hill on BBC Radio 3.

    Clemmie Burton-Hill! I love her very much. Before becoming a Radio 3 presenter, she was an actress – who even appeared in an episode of Midsomer Murders! It was the episode “Dead in the Water” – in which the five-time Olympic-gold winner Sir Steve Redgrave had a cameo appearance!
