Play Like Mozart
horizontal rule
"Play Mozart is an ideal introduction to the brilliant music of Mozart – one of the greatest composers of all time." Thus promises the author of this book. Without wishing to appear pedantic, I cannot but note the rather heavy action on the "amazing 22-key electronic piano keyboard." Still, Mozart’s melodic genius seems indestructible!
