Here's Hoping!

This little tidbit of Mozartiana caught my attention tonight. Here's hoping indeed. True the odds are slim but you just never know. My hope is that this collection of manuscripts might contain the lost trumpet concerto I've always heard about. Scholars know he wrote at least one one knows what happened to the manuscript. For now, trumpet aficionados like myself have to content ourselves with the 3-and-a-half horn concertos Mozart wrote. (Or alternatively, gape in astonishment at the trumpet concerto by Haydn or Hummel). Sigh.....yes here's hoping. You just never know.

Thanks to Kendra for the scoop.
