Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Show
 
Born: 1756-1791
Nationality: Austrian
Education/Training: first taught by his father, the controlling and exploitative Leopold Mozart, spent all but four of his first 17 years being paraded about Europe as a child prodigy, studied under Johann Christian Bach, Padre Martini and received occasional advice and critique from Franz Josef Haydn's younger brother, composer Michael Haydn
Best Known For: a storied, almost legendary compositional technique and output; very likely never wrote out finished, fully developed music from beginning to end, note by note; despite a reputation for being fiscally irresponsible, all debts were settled before his death
Notable Compositions:
Mass in C Minor, Requiem, Don Giovanni, Le Nozze di Figaro, The Magic Flute, Symphony no. 40
Assignments:
in the service of the notoriously impious Archbishop of Salzburg on-and-off between 1774 and 1781, received a commission for the opera Idomeneo in 1781 from the Elector of Bavaria, essentially a "free-lancer" after 1782 with the exception of occasional commissions
Curious Facts: to this day, he has over 600 surviving works
Quotes: "In Germany, we rather like length, but after all it is better to be short and good." -Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
