Albert Einstein:
"Mozart is the greatest composer of all...
the music is of such purity and beauty that one feels he merely
found it...that it has always existed as part of the inner beauty
of the universe waiting to be revealed".

The Mezzo's voice fills the
recitative
and beckons us to plunge
into Mozart's Little Concerto.
Exultate, jubilate, a motet sung by sopranos,
was composed for the illustrious Rauzini,
the Castrato.......
