Ep. 020 - Mozart’s Bastien und Bastienne
This week, we celebrate the first known performance of Mozart’s opera Bastien und Bastienne, which he composed when he was just 12 years old.
Included in this episode:
We are sleepy, but Mozart is the only caffeine we need (who are we kidding, we need coffee). Dr. Franz Mesmer, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, and Pagliacci make appearances in this episode, and Tina sings a bit of Offenbach. We swear it’s all connected to Mozart somehow.
Also included in this episode:
Gustav Holst, The Planets suite, and some beer we’ve been meaning to drink.
