Inspiration from the Life of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart


Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (January 27, 1756, to December 5, 1791) is one of the greatest composers of all-time. He composed over 600 works during his lifetime. Many of them were piano concertos in addition to operas and symphonies among other works. Interestingly, Mozart started composing music at the tender age of five years old. In fact, he was so good at what he did that he composed his first symphony was he was eight years old. His father, Leopold Mozart, supported him as he embarked on his musical career.


Mozart Participated in Musical Tours at a Young Age

His first tour began in mid-1763. The family toured Munich, Stuttgart, Augsburg, Frankfurt, Mainz, Paris, Mannheim, and London. Additionally, the family visited other cities such as The Hague, Brussels, and Amsterdam. Finally, they arrived back home in 1766. Mozart was only ten years old at this time. He performed as a child prodigy during these tours.


Mozart Responded Quickly To the Music He Encountered

As he embarked on his first trip, Mozart’s performances were good, but the texture of his music was not as perfect as it could be. Fortunately, tours in musical centers such as London and The Hague opened his eyes to endless possibilities. Subsequently, his music improved remarkably in terms of texture enrichment. Therefore, you can say that Mozart was a fast learner.

Parents should support their kids as Leopold supported his son. As you have seen, Mozart passion in music started to show when he was three years old. His dad sacrificed his time and ambition to take his son on tours. Similarly, musical students should make their parents proud. Remember, Mozart did not waste his dad’s time and energy. Instead, he worked hard on his music. Moreover, adapting to prevailing circumstances and trends is an excellent idea. For example, Mozart’s exposure to different styles of music during his European tours helped him to improve his musical talent.
