Mozart’s 250th


Today is Mozart’s 250th birthday. Too bad this stupid city doesn’t care about it. Any self-respecting city would at least have a bunch of concerts (or even one?!) of Mozart’s music this weekend. Not this one. I thought about going to Los Angeles to hear/see Cosi fan tutte at the Met, but that would cost me just about all the money currently in my bank account, mainly in transportation and hotel fees (mainly because I didn’t think of this until Monday). So I will listen to the broadcast on the radio instead, which isn’t nearly as much fun.

Other than the fact that I abhor Santa Barbara as a city, I’m doing fine.

About Simon

Hi. I'm Simon Rubinstein-Salzedo. I'm a mathematics postdoc at Dartmouth College. I'm also a musician; I play piano and cello, and I also sometimes compose music and study musicology. I also like to play chess and write calligraphy. This blog is a catalogue of some of my thoughts. I write them down so that I understand them better. But sometimes other people find them interesting as well, so I happily share them with my small corner of the world.

    Fly to Salzburg. They’re having a festival that lasts for days.

      Yes, but I ought to exhibit a certain amount of responsibility with respect to my courses and my finances. But Beethoven’s 250th will be in Deceber 2020, so hopefully I won’t have other things I need to be doing then. (Time to start planning ahead.)
