Happy 250th Birthday, Amadeus!

Today is the birthday of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. He was the musical genius, recognized by others, who changed the texture and sounds of Classical music forever. A complex man, to match his complex music.

His impact has endured for all these years. Kanye West should think--seriously--about what his musical legacy will be in 250 years before he embarasses himself with comparisons to other historical figures again.
