Why Mozart Is My Favorite July 27, 2021

Posted by nrhatch in Gratitude, Happiness, Music & Dance, Travel & Leisure.

This performance by members of the University of Washington Symphony Orchestra  illustrates why Mozart is my favorite classical composer:

Mozart: Serenata notturna, K.239

Oh, did I mention that my nephew is 3rd from the right playing viola?

Yup, that’s him!

Aah . . . that’s awesome!


1. Kate Crimmins - July 27, 2021

That is awesome. I love Mozart and I don’t “love” all classical music.

nrhatch - July 27, 2021

I love lots of classical composers, but none nearly as much as Mozart. His tunes resonate with me.

2. Ally Bean - July 27, 2021

I like Mozart, but am always going to default to Vivaldi’s Four Seasons. Bach is nice, too. HOWEVER getting to the point of this post, your nephew playing the viola makes the performance perfect.

nrhatch - July 27, 2021

That’s what I thought! We’ve seen him perform with other orchestras, but this “pandemic piece” hit all the right notes for me.

How wonderful!

nrhatch - July 27, 2021

I’ve listened to this recording umpteen times since April and now I’ve shared it with other Mozart aficionados. Glad you enjoyed.

Oh, how lovely to watch your nephew! I have to admit, though, that I’m partial to Mozart’s Clarinet Quintet.

nrhatch - July 28, 2021

I’ve never heard the Clarinet Quintet . . . it has a nice ring to it!

5. Joanne Sisco - July 28, 2021

Mozart always gets a thumbs up from me, but better yet is having musical talent in the family!!

nrhatch - July 28, 2021

Our nieces and nephews could form a melodious ensemble ~ piano, flute, cello, violin, viola, trumpet, saxophone . . . they just need to find a drummer!

Joanne Sisco - July 28, 2021

Wow. That would be pretty cool if they did all get together!

nrhatch - July 28, 2021

They’re pretty spread out across the country at the moment ~ Florida, Kentucky, Washington, Oregon, California ~ so it’s not too promising.

Growing up, we “enjoyed” family music sessions (no coercion involved!) with dad on the sax, J on the trumpet, D on the trombone, mom or me on the piano, B on the flute or tamborine and several of us singing our hearts out. ~> “Oh, dem golden slippers . . . “

It is a fabulous piece and you no doubt have a fabulous nephew. Mozart is good for the brain!

nrhatch - July 28, 2021

It is good for the brain! And . . . he is fabulous! Not that I’m biased or anything.

7. Debra - July 29, 2021

You have a very talented nephew! I love classical music and Mozart is a favorite. I’m so glad you shared, Nancy. I’m smiling!

nrhatch - July 30, 2021

That’s what happens when I listen to Mozart. Smiles all around!

8. L. Marie - July 30, 2021

He is definitely one of my favorites. Such a genius!

nrhatch - July 31, 2021

Amadeus = Amazing!

9. Erica/Erika - August 4, 2021

Oh, wow, congratulations to your nephew, Nancy! I used to play some Mozart on the piano many moons ago.😀 btw…I ended up listening to entire video….Great!

nrhatch - August 4, 2021

Glad you enjoyed. I have played this video multiple times and enjoyed it each time. Especially like that our talented nephew got involved with the University Symphony as soon as he moved to Seattle from Atlanta.
