A note on the Mozart Don Giovanni Overture:
On the evening of the 27th (or possibly the 28th), it was mentioned to Mozart that there was no overture [for the Don Giovanni Opera]. He reportedly said “Don’t worry. It is here,” pointing to his head. He went to his desk well after midnight and spent the entire evening composing, as his wife helped to keep him awake with punch and poetry readings. There was no time to write a score, so he wrote out the individual parts without one! A copyistView more
