Leggend or fact? Did Mozart and Beethoven ever meet? It seems that 1787 was the fateful year when Mozart granted an audition to a lad of 16... one Ludwig van Beethoven. His opinion? "Quite grazioso, but too mechanical..." Startling new testimony, irrefutable facts, and perhaps a touch of fantasy: anything to bring together two all-time legends of music.
