Celebrating Mozart's Birthday With Seattle Artists

Dave Beck

Among classical music lovers, there are debates over the relative merits of period and modern instruments. Some say that Mozart must be played with the instruments he used two centuries ago. Others believe that modern instruments sound better. On the occasion of Mozart's 254th birthday today (January 27), KUOW's Dave Beck spoke with Seattle composer and music critic Gavin Borchert. Gavin says that in the hands of expert and sensitive Seattle performers, two new recordings prove that Mozart's music transcends the instruments.
