Einstein and Music

Einstein and Music

Walter Issacson wrote in his book Einstein His Life and Universe:

His mother, an accomplished pianist, also gave him a gift at around the same time, one that likewise would last throughout his life. She arranged for him to take violin lessons. At first he chafed at the mechanical discipline of the instruction. But after being exposed to Mozart’s sonatas, music became both magical and emotional to him. “I believe that love is a better teacher than a sense of duty,” he said, “at least for me.”Soon he was playing Mozart duets, with his mother accompanying him on the piano."

Later on different public occasions, he played music especially Mozart.
