  • Simpsons did their research.

  • Yeah.

  • For those of you who don't know,

  • Homer right now is playing the part of Leopold Mozart.

  • - Yeah. - Wolfgang Amadeus' father.

  • Leopold was known...

  • To have toured Mozart and his sister around

  • Anyway, for those of you that don't know, that's how...

  • Classical musicians number...

  • Canonically, their works through out their lifetime,

  • opus numbers.

  • Or in Mozart's case, K numbers.

  • Sonata in A, K331.

  • Third Movement!

  • Now it's just becoming Simpsons.

  • Yeah, it's just Simpsons now.

  • There's nothing to do with Mozart.

  • - He was bashing violins. - Yeah, oh...

  • There is this...

  • Kind of image that Mozart was very mischievous.

  • Yeah, and very out there.

  • Yeah.

  • You know, he gambled a lot.

  • - Yeah. - Towards his later years.

  • Just a crazy artist.

  • Crazy artist...

  • Child, whatever you call it.

  • And I love how the...

  • The throwing the...

  • - The underwears... - Yeah, whatever that is.

  • Papa, let me be the headliner.

  • I always show up on time

  • and I close the piano lid ever so softly.

  • Oh, little Salieri...

  • Okay, so that's not quite accurate.

  • Salieri's not Leopold's...

  • Son or daughter in this case.

  • But Salieri is known to be the figure of like...

  • Mozart's rival.

  • Yeah.

  • But not really a rival in the sense, more like...

  • Mozart overshadowed Salieri and Salieri's very...

  • Kind of jealous.

  • Yeah. Salieri lived in Mozart's shadows.

  • And unfortunately he was just outcasted.

  • No one practices as hard as you.

  • But it's your brother who keeps us in

  • lead-based face powder.

  • Ooo - Woah!

  • Woah...

  • Oh yeah.

  • and manuscripts of Beethoven is completely different.

  • Mozart's almost just written out one go.

  • It's already perfect.

  • It just flows.

  • Whereas Beethoven's manuscripts...

  • There's tears, there's crossing outs, there's...

  • - It's like, he works... - Beethoven...

  • Struggles with so many drafts to get what he wanted.

  • And actually...

  • I remember a teacher once told me

  • that should also be reflected in how you play it.
