Musical IQ Question #27: Which of the following musicians was most likely to be found jamming with his buds, blowing improvised solos, until the wee hours of the morn? A) Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, B) Charlie Parker, or C) Ravi Shankar. If you answered A, B or C then you would be 100% correct because they were all brilliant improvisors in their respective genres. Yes, Mozart along with J.S. Bach, Handel, Beethoven, Chopin, Liszt were all renown improvisers as are all of the great Indian Raga players. In fact, you'd be hard pressed to find a genre that did not embrace improvisation. So, whatever style you play, you MUST learn how to improvise. There's no 'best' way to do that but Charlie Parker offered some sound advice; "Learn everything, then forget it all."
Dispelling hundreds of years of myths and conjectures, it wasn't until 1996 that DNA testing determined that the world-renown Cabernet Sauvignon wine was the offspring of a natural cross-pollination between the Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc grape vine dating back to the 17th century.

You unlock this door with the key of imagination. Beyond it is another dimension – a dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind. You're moving into a land of both shadow and substance, of things and ideas. You've just crossed over into the Verheyen Zone.

“Anima Eterna’s stunning playing in the tuttis is perfectly balanced with the fluent playing of Immerseel” Gramophone Magazine
This set of Mozart's concertos for solo piano, recorded in 1990 and 1991, was one of the earlier widely publicized traversals of the Mozart cycle to be performed on historical instruments, in this case a modern copy of a Viennese Walter fortepiano. The chief virtue of the set is that Belgian fortepianist Jos van Immerseel and his Anima Eterna ensemble work together in extremely well-coordinated readings.
La finta giardiniera ("The Pretend Garden-Girl"), K. 196, is an Italian opera by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Mozart wrote it in Munich in January 1775 when he was 18 years old and it received its first performance on January 13 at the Salvatortheater in Munich. There is debate over the authorship of the libretto; the current belief is that it was written by Giuseppe Petrosellini. In 1780 Mozart converted the opera into a German Singspiel called Die Gärtnerin aus Liebe (also Die verstellte Gärtnerin), which involved rewriting some of the music. Until a copy of the complete Italian version was found in the 1970s, the German translation was the only known complete score.
