Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791) was an Austrian composer and musician who is widely considered to be one of the greatest classical composers of all time. He was born in Salzburg, Austria, and began composing music at a young age. He was a prodigy who composed his first symphony at the age of eight and his first opera, “Apollo et Hyacinthus”, at the age of 11.
Mozart’s output was prolific and varied, and he composed in a wide range of genres, including symphonies, operas, piano concertos, chamber music, and choral music. Some of his most famous works include the operas “The Marriage of Figaro,” “Don Giovanni,” and “The Magic Flute”.
Mozart’s music is known for its technical proficiency, emotional depth, and innovative use of form and harmony. He was a pioneer of the classical style and his music has had a lasting influence on the development of Western classical music. Despite his short life (he died at the age of 35), Mozart left behind a vast and enduring legacy, and his music is still widely performed and enjoyed today.
