I  still remember my brother Brad telling me many years ago you have to see this movie: 'Amadeus'  ... I thought what the heck is Amadeus..obviously showing my ignorance of classical music. Well I did see this movie about Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and was in so awe of it, I had to get the soundtrack of the movie.  Wow, this is music I have never heard before and it was so beautiful. Then  on the LP [some of us still remember those] came this piece I am putting hear for your enjoyment of Mozart's 22nd piano concerto [3rd movement]. Although it has a rather simple theme, nothing spectacular, for some reason  tears came to my eyes. I'm not sure why, but I think hearing this I knew my life had changed forever as I was going to do everything in my power to get and learn about classical music. I realized something I had missed my whole life was about to come into it. 
I never have told my brother Brad this, but thank you brother for changing my life for so much more enrichment!
