MOZART Birthday Concert SUNDAY 29 Jan 2017
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791)
Mozart was a fervent believer in the brotherhood of man under the fatherhood of God. In 1784, at age 28, he was inducted into the Masonic Lodge in Vienna. In this happy capacity he created a number of works imbued with allusions to the humanitarian precepts of Freemasonry. Seven years later, still only 35, he was buried in a nameless grave. Yet, perhaps more than any other composer in the history of music, his music survives him. A consummate performer and composer of supreme genius, his works in every genre are unsurpassed in lyric beauty, rhythmic variety, and effortless melodic invention.
