Publisher's Summary

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. 

Probably the most naturally gifted musician the world has ever known, Mozart began his career early as a child prodigy. By the age five, he was already proficient on the violin, the harpsichord, and piano keyboard, and had begun composing music that had integrity. He was a showman as well, according to contemporary documents, and charmed many of the crowned heads of Europe with his performance and his manner.

Inside you’ll hear about:
 

  • Early years of prodigy.
  • The Grand Tour 1763-66.
  • Setbacks and success in Vienna.
  • The solo trip to Italy.
  • Salzburg to Vienna.
  • Augsburg, Mannheim, Paris, and Munich.
  • Munich and Idomeneo.
  • And much more...

Unlike other child prodigies though, Mozart developed gradually into a mature musician, composing operas, concertos, 41 symphonies, string quartets, piano sonatas, and many other kinds of music. Although he died when he was only 35 years old, he is still one of the most prolific composers who ever lived.
