Piano concerto No.21 was written by Mozart during his most prolific Vienna period of life, when he composed on average one significant piece per week. The second part of this concerto – a famous “Andante” – opens with a dreamlike melody. This otherworldly motive is engraved in children’s DNA. They heard it first from every crib mobile in the world.As toddlers they surely heard it in the “Sleepy Time” episode of The Simpsons. When they reach school age they encounter this melody again in the children’s program “Little Einsteins”, as teenagers they hear it again in the TV series “Whiz Kids”. When fully grown – here is that captivating melody again in the James Bond film “The Spy Who Loved Me”. This music is so familiar to every ear that sometimes it feels like birds are singing it all around us!!
