Mozart — Symphony No. 29 in A Major

K. 201 —  This genuine masterpiece by Mozart is from the beginning of 1774, and it attains an unprecedented and unsuspected degree of profundity.

What is more, the music is most masterly where it is most profound: talent and genius have found each other. It is as if Mozart's 18th birthday (January 27 of that year) had pushed him ahead of his current stage of development.

Another Experiment

I don't know if anyone still reads this blog -- and I'm sure some people will be pissed because all I do on it now is promote my book or whatever -- but it would be a shame if I didn't come here to announce that the paperback of HACK was released today. There's even a picture of my face on the cover (not my idea, but I didn't have too much of a choice). Anyway, I'm pretty proud of it, and I hope you will all enjoy it if you never got around to getting the hardcover.
