Back by popular demand, for the day after Mozart's birth anniversary we offer a repeat broadcast of K is for Koechel: The Story Behind Those Mozart Numbers. Join me and my father, Mozart expert Neal Zaslaw (left), for a colorful look at Mozart's music and how Mozart buffs through time have attempted to put it all in order - whether or not that's possible! Hear about the man who first tried to make a list, or catalog, of everything Mozart ever wrote, Ludwig von Koechel (right); the Romantic image of Mozart vs. how he really composed; pros and cons of attempting tidy chronologies; the secret formula relating Mozart's age to Koechel (K.) numbers; sleuthwork into Mozart's handwriting and watermarks, and more. And there's music throughout. This hour-long special first aired on GPB on Mozart's 200th birthday, two years ago, and was picked up by stations in Iowa, Indiana, Utah and North Carolina. Please join Dad and me, Monday at 11 on GPB Radio or
