Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Genius & Connoisseur
In the same way that Mozart’s music enchanted people around the globe, the gifted composer also let himself be captured by the pleasurable moments in life. Mozart created a virtually infinite wealth of compositions with timeless beauty and harmony – he nevertheless appreciated the sweet life with all its comforts and delicacies.
The Child Prodigy
“Wolferl”, as Mozart was often lovingly called, came into the world on 27th January 1756 in Salzburg’s Getreidegasse. He was given lessons by his father Leopold at an early age together with his older sister Nannerl.
He was as young as 5 when he composed his first piano pieces. At six, he played the second violin in a quartet and declared to the astounded listeners: “To play the second violin, one does not need to have learned how to play it!” It has also been said that he jumped onto Empress Maria Theresia’s lap in the audience and covered her in affectionate kisses. It’s no wonder that courtly society took a shine to the cheeky, exceedingly gifted rascal.
The Vienna Years
After copious concert tours with his father and working as a concertmaster with Salzburg’s Prince-Bishop Colloredo, he moved to Vienna in the summer of 1781, where he was immediately employed as a freelance composer who fascinated people with his inspired works.
Wolfgang & Constanze
On 4th August 1782, he married his beloved Constanze, born Weber, in St. Stephen’s Cathedral in Vienna, before his father had given him written permission. Constanze was a woman with a lust for life, who became a good listener and counsellor for Wolfgang by virtue of her musical education. She accompanied her husband on his journeys across Europe. Her fox terrier, “Pimperl”, played an important role in Mozart’s life and was mentioned in many letters.
The Complete Works of Mozart
Mozart died on 5th December 1791 at the age of only 35 years. His complete works include an entire spectrum of the artistic modes of expression present in his time. He composed for Emperor Joseph II, for the aristocracy, the church, the theatre and the concert hall.
