Artistic Concentration

New York Times Critic Anthony Thomassini on Mozart:

"Though he lived through the French Revolution you search his letters in vain for anything other than the most oblique references to this continental cataclysm.  He had no feeling for nature and no interest in the visual arts.   In his letters home during his wide-ranging travels he describes everything he heard and nothing he saw."



  1. Can you tell me where you found this quote by Tomassini? I am interested in reading more. Thanks.

  2. Lali,

    Sure. I just sent you an email with the pasted information.
