Happy Birthday, Mozart!

The AP has an Introduction to Mozart's Music and Don't know anything about Mozart? Start here, which has suggestions for what to listen to for romance, calming down, waking up, and more.

Also from the AP, Music Lovers Fete Mozart on 250th Birthday and from the AFP, World wishes Mozart happy 250th birthday.
