- Beethoven: ARE YOU READY TO HEAR SOME SYMPHONIES?!
- Audience: *cheers*
- Beethoven: I CAN'T HEAR YOU!!
"His funeral! Imagine it, the cathedral, all Vienna sitting there, his coffin, Mozart’s little coffin in the middle, and then, in that silence, music! A divine music bursts out over them all. A great mass of death! Requiem mass for Wolfgang Mozart, composed by his devoted friend, Antonio Salieri! Oh what sublimity, what depth, what passion in the music! Salieri has been touched by God at last. And God is forced to listen! Powerless, powerless to stop it! I, for once in the end, laughing at him!"

What composer are you? Find your match on this handy chart Leah Garaas and I made for Classical MPR.
I am Brahms.
Charles Ives, hell yeah!
Said it before, and I’ll say it again: Schubert is my spirit animal.
Read it wrong the first time. I’m Verdi. That makes much more sense.
Apparently, I’m Beethoven!
My brother and I were driving today and when he asked me what kind of music I wanted to listen to, I told him that I wanted to listen to rock.
Next thing I know, I’m hearing Mozart blasting through my car speakers. I look over at my brother and he says “Mozart was the rockstar of his time”
