Mozart meglio di Kanye West

Purists may scoff at the way Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is being used and abused on his 250th anniversary but, in terms of worldwide recognition and merchandising, he beats any pop idol or sports star. And he does so not merely because his music represents a heavenly panacea in a turbulent world, but because he can play any role you give him – political or commercial, comic or spiritual, popular or highbrow.

The real wonder of Mozart is how an 18th century composer, exhaustively fêted on the 200th anniversary of his death just 15 years ago, should continue to command attention and transcend the tides of fashion in a media-driven world.
