Mozart was born January 27, 1756 as the seventh child of a musical family. Mozart mother and father’s names were Anna Maria and Leopold. Leopold was a musicals with ambition while Anna Marl has a good sense of humor to balance him out. They had seven children, but only 2 lived beyond Infancy (Wolfgang and his older sister Marl Anna). He was born In Salisbury, or modern day Austria. Mozart father was a successful violinist and renowned composer of the Salisbury court, influencing Mozart and his sister musically.
Mozart was considered a hill prodigy, beginning to play at the ripe age of three years old after becoming stricken with envy while watching his older sister being taught the piano. He began teaching himself, but after showing great promise with a knack for chord progressions and rhythm, he was taken by his father. Along with his older sister Maria Anna, and they would tour Europe with their father. At an early age Mozart was given lessons with his father and composed little minuets of his own. Mozart was tutored privately by his father and had pleasure In learning, but at an early age, he as deadlines.
Mozart first composition was written In 30 minutes, and learned how to compose other types of music In the following days (a march, a trio, etc). He would keep these In a notebook and potential of being a great composer was seen at an early age by Leopold. Mozart and his sister gained fame on their tours around Europe. Mozart first public concert was at Line, where he was promptly sent to Vienna because a Count and a councilor in the imperial ministry of Finance wanted to spread what they had seen. The people of Vienna waited anxiously for their arrival ND after that trip, invitations to other sites “poured in”.
They were rewarded with money and gifts; people would seek them to perform and we’re known as the “miracle children”. Along with the rewards also came with hard work and risks. Mozart became Ill more than once, with “scarlet fever rash” or acute rheumatoid arthritis, and It was obvious the children were not prone to disease. Marl Anna’s career as a professional musician ended In 1769, leaving Mozart farther to focus on his son. When Mozart was 13, he was taken to Italy on an outing (a term used loosely, nice it took two years), hoping that he could get his son’s talent into the world.
While in Italy, Mozart wrote three operas, including the opera Allegro’s Miseries, transcribed completely from memory. His other operas include Re did Pont, Occasion in Alba, and Lucia Sills. When he returned from his “outing”, Mozart was employed under the new archbishop of Austria, and was making a third of his father’s salary at the age of 16. He mainly played the violin, and was considered a leader among the orchestra. Mozart composed symphonies, quartets, and all of his known violin concertos during his time period, and while this was considered a huge success, he was unhappy.
The Archbishop became very Impatient with this genius’ childish personality. In 1777, Mozart set out for other endeavors. He found many opportunities while traveling with his mother, but would end up not getting the Job, thus leading to a time period of destitution and desperation for money, having to pawn off his possessions Just to get by. Mozart mother died in his arms in 1778, which he had to lightly tell his tragic turn of events, Mozart returned to Salisbury and played as the local organist. He composed sacred works and church pieces such as “The Coronation Mass”, along Ninth a some more operas.
He resigned from the orchestra and began freelancing as a composer and performer. Mozart began teaching in Vienna, where he continued to compose and freelance. Mozart fell in love and married Constance, a daughter of a family he stayed with in Vienna, when he was rejected by Alyssa and to his father’s dismay. They married the summer of 1782, and had six children, though only two survived (Karl Thomas and Franz Xavier). Mozart was considered a good husband who Ovid Constance unconditionally and a good friend to have as well.
He was willing to sacrifice himself for his friendships and had few enemies. In 1782, the music of Bach and Handel took hold of Mozart, and he became infatuated with it. His music during this time period was heavily influenced by these fellow composers, and his baroque period began to arise. Major proof of this was from his opera The Magic Flute, which held great amounts of influence from Handel and Bach. Mozart also wrote quartets dedicated to his friend, Joseph Haydn. During this time period, Mozart and Haydn Mere pretty good friends.
In 1781, the opera The Abduction from the Seraglio was gaining fame and Mozart was rising in the music community. His family lived a lavish lifestyle and he sent his song Karl Thomas to a prestigious boarding school. If this Nasty any implication of Mozart fruitful career, then I don’t know what is. In the mid sass, Mozart performed 22 concerts as a solo during a five week period. After becoming aware of his significance to the musical community, he began to catalogue his works. His tours in 1790 in Germany were his last, and he became poor and situate.
His last few months were spend in illness and fear: of his death, of his inability to finish this final commission (his Requiem), and of financial problems. He died December 1791 at age 36, where he was buried at a common graveyard in an unmarked grave. To this day, no one knows for sure where his bones lie, but Mozart Nil live on, through his music and his genius. His works varied from instrument types and styles of work. He wrote multiple Aria’s and Operas, marches, dance music, music for ensemble voices, wind ensembles, strings, keyboard, it all varied.
