Mozart Plays Billiards

Mozart - who loved the game of billiards and was an exceptional aficionado of the game while playing it with little skill - enjoyed composing on the table as well, rolling balls in geometric patterns across it while working. To observers it might have seemed as though he was interested in the patterns themselves; it delightfully turns out that what he was really looking at were the changing reflections in the surface of the balls. - John Ptak
