This work speaks of spontaneity. However, the clear relationships in the image space indicate a clear course of action. It was also created during the festival time in the summer in Salzburg, that is why worlds of sound transformed into form and color seem to influence the work of the artist. Friedrich Neubauer again and again spoke of making music visible trough painting. Mozart sounds become spots of color, whirring in red and blue. The heavy basses are depicted by dark shades of color. Soft green against bright white lightens and cheers the scene up. All colors seem to be moving as if they could change on the scene spread here. Nevertheless it is an instant that is recorded here.
