Mozart and the Barber Shop Chase

“Why Can’t you Sit Still?

“Because I’m Mozart”

In his delightful tome, The Book of Musical Anecdotes, Norman Lebrecht reveals that the perpetually inspired Mozart led his Barber on a hair-cutting chase:

“Every moment an idea would occur to him…he would run to the clavier, the barber after him, hair-ribbon in hand.”

Luckily for Mozart, the barber had a steady hand.
