Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791) was a composer and pianist of the classical era. Mozart's father, Leopold, was a composer and violinist, and taught Mozart the violin, piano, and composition. Mozart began performing and composing at a young age, and Leopold took Mozart and his sister on performing tours of Europe, presenting them as child prodigies. After Mozart left home, he worked as a composer and musician in Salzburg and later Vienna. Mozart composed over 600 musical works and was also a skilled improviser. He composed many symphonies, concertos, operas, chamber works, and pieces for piano. I have selected some of the best of Mozart for you to explore.
