The finale features the soloists in dialogue with the choir. Leopold and Nannerl announce that the time has come for Wolfie and them to move on. The choir replies by asking them to stay a bit longer so they can celebrate Wolfie’s achievements. Wolfie joins in at the keyboard. From here on it’s a full-steam-ahead celebration of his music. This song is part of the mini-opera A Boy Called Wolfie.
