Mozart's 250th Birthday

I thank classical music lover, Iranian For Aryan's blog, for informing us of Mozart's landmark 250th birthday. Mozart's Prague Symphony must be my all around most favorite composition, sheer creative musical genius.

A new blog,On The Contrary, revisits the significance of Mozart's birthday in the dark time of Europe today.

What about Metaxas' birthday....you big "nationalist" you......perhaps a German nationalist, that would get a big smack down from the Fuhrer himself. Viel Gluck.

Thanks for the kind words, nigga!

His Prague is great. Hell, everything he wrote was great!

Although the message I am responding to was addressed to another, I thought I'd insert myself into the discussion in order to straighten out some details.

Unlike Westerners, Hellenes invest less significance to the date of one's birth and more significance to one's name day (i.e. the feast day of the saint after whom one is named) or to one's death (e.g. memorial services are often performed on the anniversary of one's death). Thus, it would be somewhat unconventional to commemorate Metaxas' birthday. (However, the fact that you may have posted your comment on, or around, the date of Metaxas' death is not lost on me.)
