Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is one of those great ones, like Ludwig von Beethoven, where the last name is all you need to identify him. Like Einstein, or Shakespeare, or Washington. This week we’ll discuss childhood genius and the good and bad things that come with it; Mozart’s less than ideal marriage and its lessons for us; the precise number of notes that a piece of music should include (if there is one – spoiler alert, there isn’t); and a way you can build on the work of Mozart today on your game table.
