by Mozart Aired For First Time
AUSTRIA -- A Mozart composition has been performed for the first
time - 215 years after the master died. The previously unknown composition
attributed to Wolfgang Amadeus was performed in his hometown, Salzburg.
The piano composition, titled Allegro di Wolffgango Mozart, was
found in a book of music recently sold to the archive of Salzburg
archdiocese. It is believed to be one of his earliest works, written
when he was between six and 10 years old. According to the director
of the archdiocese archive, Ernst Hintermeier, the piece was written
between 1763 and 1766. The piece is included in a book of music
alongside 118 other compositions, mainly minuets, preludes and versets,
some of which are by Mozart and others by prominent local composers
of the time. It was dated according to its paper, which bears the
watermark of a famous paper maker, Johann Sigismund Hofmann, whose
products were widely used in the 1750s and the 1760s, also by Mozart
and his father, Leopold. Dr Ulrich Leisinger, of the Salzburg-based
International Mozart Foundation, said he saw no reason to doubt
the authorship of the newly found Allegro.
month's featured artist is painter and teacher, Carmen
Kelley. Carmen moved to the US in 1962. She left
Cuba with her parents and grandparents, living in Venezuela for
a year. They fled like many others during that time with only the
clothes on their backs and no money in their pockets. In her own
words, "I am a Cuban American artist and proud of it. I draw
the beauty of my homeland when I was a child and incorporate my
marine background using the colors I see here in the Keys. What
would the world be without color. I can spend a lifetime drawing
and it would not be enough..." Learn
