In today's newsletter, I segued from Alexander Hamilton and the ten dollar bill to a fine performance of Mozart's Marriage of Figaro at Wolf Trap last week (don't ask about the relationship, you had to be there--and in fact you can be there if you sign up here) but I then continued:
If you share a taste for Mozart, you might want to go back and read the fine appreciation of him by Fred Baumann in our issue a few years ago celebrating his 350th birthday."
Oops. Well, a century here, a century there. It was Mozart's 250th birthday that we commemorated in 2006. (And by the way, one connection of Hamilton and Mozart is that they were born only about a year apart.)
