A Conversation for Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart - Composer

Mozart's masses.

The Amazing Bongo! from whom all mortals flee

Apart from the requiem, Mozart wrote three superb masses - the C minor (K427), the Coronation Mass (K317) and the Missa solemnis (K337). I'd recommend them to anyone.

Also, his symphonies deserve some mention (in particular, no. 38 "Prague"). The later ones (Nos. 38-41) are the most breathtaking.

I really enjoy Symphony No. 40, as well as Symphony No. 25. They are both in the same key.

i quite enjoy the reqiem - the bit written by mozart, not the guy hired to finish it - especially deis irae - really powerful stuff that. i have the amadeus movie soundtrack on record, and the best thing in the world is to crank that full boar and float. the fact that it's written in latin is cool too
