    How do we know ANY composer wrote what we think he wrote? Nobody was around to take pictures or hide a camera in the room, so how we know Bach wrote the Brandenburg Concerti?

    Sorry but I think the copyright might have expired on that.

    Incredibly thorough scholarship of thousands of academics over the centuries - painstaking assessment of contemporary and later documentary evidence, autograph scores, handwriting analysis by experts and much much more.

    It is amazing what we know - we even know where Constanze bought the paper Mozart wrote many of this works on and how much she paid.

    Wamy had a team of ghost writers, but he did compose a lot of his early works when he was about three years old but he was probably the first true entrepreneur and was responsible for feeding a lot of families.

    That's a great point: "handwriting analysis by experts." Never thought of that. I don't know much about how manuscripts are authenticated. Up until my first post, I had just "assumed" everything was firmly settled --- as much as possible, that is.

    I'm glad to be here and hope to learn more that will add to my listening enjoyment -- especially of Mozart.

    I thought it was common knowledge that Mozart never wrote any of his works.
    They were in fact written by aliens, the original manuscripts were found by the Apollo 11 astronauts on the moon. They are now stored in Area 51, with Elvis.
    Listen to me when I'm talking to you boy!

    Haydn's works are in there too.
