Mozart Mixup

Imagine you have been recruited to do lunchtime concert, and when the music starts, you realize the orchestra is playing something you didn't expect. The Mozart concerto you prepared for is not the one they are performing! That happened to pianist Maria Joao Pires in Amsterdam a few years ago. You can see the dread and panic in her eyes. Luckily she had played the right concerto before, but a mere mortal wouldn't have been able to pull that up from the memory banks and perform as she does. (via TYWKIWDBI)
