1679 Steinbach Nutcracker Composer Mozart
An old STEINBACH catalogue shows a
musical box with Mozartís string quartet on the front page. All
figures, hand-painted in the marvellous costumes as they were worn in
Mozartís days. (1756ó 1791) at the Viennese court. The musical box
itself has a Swiss Thorens movement with 38 teeth and 2 tunes = 1. A
little night music 2. Menuet (W. A. Mozart).
Such beautiful works are irretrievable
no longer possible today or absolutely priceless.
It was good that a beautifully-made
violin fell into our hands which our Piccolo-nutcracker really liked so
of course: we had to get a Mozart. For the 1st time our nutcracker has
swopped his traditional hat for a wig. After all everything must
be brought in line with former times. Yes, and now our nutcracker has
gained some of the magic that comes from Mozartís music!
It is also quite good, that we have
this model only in junior size. It is like a symbol for the genius of
Mozart who began a life of achievements at the age of six and died at
the early age of 35.
