You're not Mozart

 

Mozart was once approached by a young man who was interested in Mozart's advice on how to compose a symphony. Since he was still very young, Mozart recommended that he start by composing ballads. Surprised, the young man responded, "But you wrote symphonies when you were only ten years old." "But I didn't have to ask how," countered Mozart.

一次,有位少年去请教莫扎特。他说:您能告诉我怎样写交响乐吗?”

 

莫扎特微笑着对他说:我看你现在写交响乐未免早了点,你为什么不练着写些小曲呢?”

 

那位少年立刻不服气地说:您开始写交响乐的时候不是才10岁吗?”

 

莫扎特点头称是,他说:可是我那个时候并没有问过谁怎样写交响乐呀!
