I'm a little short of breath because it has been a long day and I have been breathing all the time do you care for piano music too bad well it is always a big question for me to choose something to play but I think I will talk a little and play little about Mozart the Danish composer Hans Christian Mota Moe Tadas you know was only from here up he was what we call a bust but in spite of that physical handicap the scholars insisted he was fairly happily married but mrs. Mozart wasn't she went all the way to the floor I shall now go to the piano you didn't think we had one we might not I told you well if the piano went up here I would go up with it this is one big black key oh I'm sorry this is a wonderful piano is a shame these big fat upper singers always lean against them and Bend some business the heavy arias and now it's just too drastic pardon me for sitting down but it's actually I have chosen to play at the selection for which I've had most requests during many years on this stage the last request that was in 1936 and I can't remember what it was now three things now three things I can never remember for I'm gonna play a Viennese Waltz by a Viennese composer get them when you hear this that is the introduction to the wall then when you hear this that is the main theme of the wall and when you hear this then there is definitely something wrong because that's shopping oh now I remember I was going to speak about Mozart I'm going to play an opera in in four flats because he had to move three times it's a short opera actually Mozart wrote it but he had Salyers name on it that that's not the point I wanna quit testing is for here the millions of people don't know what this thing is for unfortunately I happen to be one of not anyway it is a very short up I disown in one act it begins when the cut Rises otherwise you couldn't see you think on the stage are two large trees one on this side one on the other side first the tenor comes in he's supposed to meet the soprano who hasn't arrived yet of course and when she comes in later she can't find him because he has hidden hidden himself even I didn't we talked about Musa not hiding hidden behind his feet now she hides behind the other tree because you want to surprise him when he comes in data which he doesn't because he's there already it's very difficult a cute plot to think now the chorus comes in but nobody knows why except Mozart and he's dead here now the father comes in her father comes in and he's very angry because he doesn't even want to be in the Opera yeah he hates opera he hates music and he decides he must die she dies and the curtain falls but not hard enough I take it to the other but you just hear the overture but as soon as the choice over there was comfortable conductors footsteps even when he enters the orchestra pit he walks sideways Dakota personal horse yeah now the cut Rises the tenor comes in from that side in the single file until the bottom of the Father he goes behind the tree thank you I'll tell him now the leading lady arrives she's supposed to film the part of the soprano she not only fills it she overflows her head she's a pickpocket she's a baker the picture problems she's about four and a half feet tall lying down she arrives in a single pilot her voice reaches part of the body all the singles never heard of she goes behind the tree and surrounds it completely now while you were laughing and applauding the corrals has been in and out and yes and the baritone comes in Oh at all unguarded he's in the wrong opera but now the father comes in the El Paso I speak by the devil lost the state elders how light is awful oh well how low can a man get he has now told her all he wants to tell her and she sings her desire to make a long story short she dies by stabbing herself between the two big trees they understand you
