The life and virtuosity of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756 - 1791) was celebrated at the NYMC Music and Medicine event on November 17 in Nevins Auditorium. The program, which included a lecture by Stephen Moshman, M.D., fourth from left, SOM professor of clinical medicine, was complemented by musical selections performed by a string quartet from the Manhattan School of Music. Dr. Moshman examined the talent, genius and prodigy of Mozart, who during his short life of 35 years, composed more than 600 works including symphonies, concertos, operas, chamber and choral music. Dr. Moshman, who is also the conductor and music director of the Albert Einstein Symphony Orchestra, was joined by from left: Edward C.
