Suzi Quatro on Mozart

"Mozart - his music is wonderful, but where are the mistakes?" - from today's thought-provoking BBC Radio 3 Private Passions where Suzi Quatro was Michael Berkeley's guest. Her choice of music ranged from Beethoven to Dylan and Billie Holiday, and, yes, Mozart - the Concerto for Clarinet and Orchestra, K. 622. Worth listening to, catch via Listen Again until June 25.

Listening to it now, thanks for the tip. And it already proves it worth: how Horowitz plays Beetheven, that is unsurpassed. So sure. He must know he made a definitive interpretation.

I had occasion to listen to various Beethoven piano interpretations recently, and this is indeed a class in itself.

I've ordered that CD.

That is the first great new Mozart quote I've read in a long time.

An interesting programme, and a thoughtful contribution fom the readers above.

It is a measure of my conditioning and prejudice that I nearly didn't listen to it because of Suzie Quatro. It was only the knowledge that Michael Berkeley never makes a dud programme that prompted me to listen on earphones while cutting the lawn.

Glad I did ...

How right you are pliable, I still remember a PP from 1999 with the Indian writer Gita Mehta that was a lesson in how to listen to Indian music and how it has a relationship to western...fascinating..never repeated as far as I know.
MB has an extroadinary ability to draw out of non profesional music lovers some remarkable insights.. often they are more interesting than composers say.
