"Mozart by Magnum" honors the great Master presenting the first music video for one of his compositions – a remix of his 25th Symphony's first movement (G minor, KV. 183). The remix translates the dynamics and power of the music into images that captivate and draw the viewer directly into Mozart's creative process.
With his first piece in a Minor key, Amadeus Mozart – only 17 years old in 1773 – broke all musical conventions and the expectations of his contemporaries and patrons who were used to the former child-star's light, gallant, works in a Major key. The Musical Genius now presented himself as a mature composer with a piece that was more assertive, expressive, and passionate than any of his previous works.
It was certainly a very deep experience to contemplate and dwell on the creative process of a genius such as Mozart, his confrontation with the creative block, and the loneliness and vanity that come as the price to pay for unique, other-worldly talent. The most interesting and powerful part for us was translating that 'Eureka' moment when you are not only inspired by an idea, but you are confident that it is the one.
