In fairness to all players, the bonus points for the funniest answers to the "You were there" questions will be awarded after the contest closes on January 8th. For your amusement, here are a few of the entries we've received:
Bonus question #1:
December 29, 1778. Wolfgang finally works up the nerve to ask Aloysia
for her hand in marriage, but she rejects the proposal outright. Devastated,
he comes to you, his dear friend, and cries for what seems like hours.
Upon regaining his composure he strides over to your clavier and belts
Bonus Question #2
It's January 1782. Leopold was so livid upon hearing about Frau Weber's marriage contract that he suggested to Wolfgang that she be put in chains, forced to sweep streets and carry a placard around her neck inscribed with the words "Seducer of Youth."
That's pretty strong stuff, but maybe not strong enough. If you were judge and jury, what punishment would you mete out?
Bonus Question #3
The kind-hearted Constanze was furious at the icy reception she received from Leopold in Salzburg. At one point she asked for a small memento of the European tours the Mozarts took when Wolfgang was a child prodigy. Leopold disdainfully refused, signaling that he'll never consider her worthy of the name "Mozart."
So, without resorting to profanity (Constanze was very devout), how might she have responded to Leopold as a way of cutting him down to size?
As a reminder...
