We were talking the other evening at the break and our trumpet player 
was relating his only D in college.  It had to a music history class 
and he had just gotten off the road with the Elgarts and was studying 
Mozart, the trpt. player indicated to the professor that he really 
didn't care for Mozart and the prof. retorted that Mozart is like a 
fine wine you must acquire a taste for it or something to that effect.  
Now, of course, my friend loves Mozart and realizes how immature he 
was.  Again, who said, that youth is wasted on the young!
