... An informative rant ~ on a couple of fun things!
YES! Herr Michael Lorenz is one of those musicologists who have the courage NOT to blindly follow the traditional canon of only repeating what other biographers have said or just speculate what they want and without anything in hand -
but dig through the actual documents themselves
and if something, based on evidence, invites reasonable doubt as it does not compute with what we've been repeatedly told for 200 years - he is not afraid to say so and to post argumentative and evidence-based criticism. Especially Mozarteum (as self-propagating, self-absorbed establishment who cares only of ''Mozart-as-they-want-to-interpret-and-sell-him'' and not so much of Mozart-as-he-was ~ and frankly, who knows who real Mozart was any more, so many biographers are used to casually twist Mozart's own words for their own personal purpose) rises his fury http://michaelorenz.blogspot.com/2014/08/eva-gesine-baur-does-

Cave ab homine unius libri ... "We are all one. Ours is not a better way, ours is merely another way." ~ Neale Donald Walsch
Had he but spar'd his Tongue and Pen, He might have rose like other Men:
But, Power was never in his Thought; And, Wealth he valu'd not a Groat:
Ingratitude he often found, And pity'd those who meant the Wound:
But, kept the Tenor of his Mind, To merit well of human Kind:
Nor made a Sacrifice of those Who still were true, to please his Foes.

''... Best way to come to the heart of the matter is to stick a knife into it.''
''You mean to say exactly what you know; but in reality you are giving expression to what is, in all essential particulars, an hypothesis. You do not KNOW it at all; it is nothing but an hypothesis rapidly framed in your own mind. And it is an hypothesis founded on a long train of inductions and deductions.'' ~ T. H. Huxley.
''Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities. Quand la populance se mele de raisonner, tout est perdu.'' (Reason can justify everything - it is its winning trait - and a deadly flaw ...)
