Mozart's music / Музыка Моцарта

Masha

Hello, Kate!

Kate

Nice to see, Masha! How did you spend your weekend?

Masha

I went to a concert. Did you see the advertising «Mozart's Symphonies Played by Young Musicians»?

Kate

Well, yes, but, unfortunately, I did not manage to visit it. Was it interesting? It was great! You know, Mozart started writing his musical compositions at the age of four and his first opera appeared when he was 11.

Masha

Really? I did not know that! Where there many young musicians, who played his works?

Kate

Yes, some of them were really very young and played beautifully!

Masha

I know one of his greatest works, it is C-minor composition.

Kate

Yes, he wrote it before his wedding with Constance Weber. Actually, he wanted to marry her sister Louise, but she declined

Masha

It is very interesting. Was the famous Requiem among the works played at the concert?

Kate

Of course, it was his last work.

Masha

I know this requiem was commissioned by an unnamed stranger, and while working on it, Mozart knew, it would be his requiem.

Kate

He was very young, just 35 when he died. But he had created 49 symphonies and 18 operas, that are famous all over the world.

Masha

I hope to hear his music soon.

Kate

Next time I will go with you!

Masha

O.K.
