Quote of the Day

"Contrary to popular belief, Eine Kleine Nachtmusik was actually originally written for 6 saxophones. Yes, Mozart wrote it for saxophones, though there was a slight problem. The saxophone wasn't invented until... 1832... which gave Mozart about 50-60 years to write the music. Fortunately, we're only going to play he first movement, because that's the only one that was originally written for saxophones. Mozart got stuck afterwards and wrote the rest of the piece for strings. So now, here is the original version of Eine Kleine Nachtmusik!"

I dont know.... The above quote was actually from my old head of music last night. He's always been somewhat strange but that was amusing.
