Next week, a mini-Mozart will settle in Uzhgorod (PHOTOS)
The sculpture will be installed on January 27, on the birthday of one of the most brilliant composers in history. This time, the author Mykhailo Kolodko, as with most city mini-sculptures, will adhere to the single concept - the historical figure's relation to Transcarpathia. And, as it turned out, the famous Austrian composer indeed in some way is related to our region.
"At the end of last year in the Budapest Széchenyi National Library, which UzhNU closely cooperates with, the original of one of the most famous piano sonatas of Mozart's - "Rondo in the Turkish style - was found, - Mykhailo Kolodko says. - For more than 200 years it was considered lost and the notes were found accidentally - an employee was translating some papers, picked up the notes and recognized the handwriting of Mozart.
"You know, if this happened in our country, he could have hidden the manuscript in his pocket and then sold it profitably (laughs - Ed.), but that person made the necessary inquiries and confirmed his guess. It is unknown how such a valuable historical legacy of the great composer ended up there, because Mozart never visited Budapest" - Mykhailo Kolodko says.
"With much gratitude for such a respect for the culture, we want to present the sculpture of Mozart to the Budapest Széchenyi Library"- Miykhailo Kolodko says.
A suitable location for the mini-Mozart in Uzhgorod was also found - in the children's music school, which has just had the facade restored. Partly hidden in the courtyard of the school, Mozart will be seen by passers-by from Voloshin street.
