How Mozart is explained in the “Tiger Mom” book

“Mozart is notoriously difficult. His music is famously sparkling, brilliant, effervescent and effortless – adjectives that strike terror in the hearts of most musicians.”

“There’s a saying that only the young and old can play Mozart well: the young because they are oblivious and the old because they are no longer trying to impress anyone.”

“When playing runs and trills, think of champagne or an Italian soda, and all those bubbles rising to the top.”
