    Hank had it made compared to what Mozart had to endure.

    The divine always comes in a humble package, Hank.  You were the lucky one.

    Any relation to Hank Williams? I notice they had the same first name, so I thought maybe there was a relation.

    Possibly...and their cousins Hank Aaron and Tom Hanks.

    No, I was not aware that Mozart even had a brother named Hank, since he was Austrian. However, I was aware of Schubert’s “Unfinished Symphony In B Minor”.

    It's people like W A Mozart that make you realise how little you have achieved. When he was my age, he had been dead for 13 years.

    No, no, no. You've got that all wrong.

    First off it's The Unbegun Symphony, not The Unstarted Symphony. And the composer is none other than musical genius (or is that musical plagiarist) Bach. That's P.D.Q. Bach.

    And then there's his 1712 Overture . . .

    And least we forget what may be his best composition Erotica for Banned Instruments (or maybe not, who knows?)

    His musical accomplishment are just so unspeakable, especially in mixed company. Brings a tear to my eye. This post was edited by Salt and Red Pepper at October 14, 2017 6:35 AM MDT
