Out of this world


He even took the gramophone with him on safari. Three rifles, supplies for a month, and Mozart." Unlike Denys Finch Hatton, I never carried three rifles but Mozart - at first in vinyl, then on cassette, and more recently on CD - was always close at hand.

Mozart's clarinet concerto in A major, K. 622, Adagio is simply music from the gods. Coupled with the breathtaking scenery from 'Out of Africa', those clarinets, oboes and cellos touch that melancholy mood which makes it all worthwhile being a member of the human race.

So sit back and benefit from the Mozart Effect.
