I saw this a while ago, but I forgot to post about it.
The recenty found a previously unknown work by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. It was only one page long and incomplete. But finding anything from such classic talents like Mozart is always huge news in the arts community.
It appears that they’re going to sell this piece to the highest bidder. Wouldn’t it be a great to see some relatively unknown band purchase it, put harmonies to it, complete the arrangement and release it?
Can you imagine having a song “inspired” by Mozart in your arsenal. What a great claim. Though most certainly a gimmick, it’d still draw a certain amount of interest in the band. And it would probably get airplay and interview time.
My guess, though, is that it’ll end up under glass in someone study somewhere.
But I’ll still be looking for a pirated copy on the bit torrent sites…
[By the way… the picture here is just a dramatization. That’s not really Mozart.]
