Tomorrow is, of course, Mozart's 250th birthday - not a bad milestone for a composer who skipped childhood and never made it to middle age. If you happen to be in New York City, you could celebrate it by going to hear the Berlin Philharmonic and Alfred Brendel play an all-Mozart program at Carnegie Hall. Or you could just powder your periwig and crash the costume party at the New York Times Business Section. Oh, those fun-loving commercial real estate reporters!
