Often, the musical factoids that drip out during the month of August in the mainstream media are negligible (not to say downright weird). But I am intrigued by the new report by a Dutch doctor showing that Mozart may have died of strep throat. At the very least, the study casts more light on daily life (and death) in 18th-century Vienna, a topic always dear to my heart.
