Mozart’s Music Flair


The music is not in the notes, but in the silence between. This is the statement of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, a great music composer, and performer. The world held him as one of the greatest music composers in the history of mankind. He was born in 1756 on 27th of January, in Salzburg, Austria. It is said that when he was only three years old, he learned Piano and violin. He learned to play violin merely by observing his father Leopold teaching his elder sister Maria Anna

He was a very prodigious child from the very beginning of his life. His exceptional quality was suddenly recognized by his father when he was at three years of age. This child of prodigy brilliance started composing or writing music by his sixth year. He rapidly developed his exceptional creative ability in all of the different music forms, and he developed masterly command over all of them. Beginning from the age of six up to the seventeen years of his age, he traveled across Europe with his elder sister and father.

Mozart started living as a concert Pianist. He wrote many concertos and symphonies. At seventeen years of age, another feather in his cap was added to his credit when he was appointed assistant concertmaster of the Royal Court of Salzburg. There, he extended his domain of music works. The most remarkable things relating to Mozart’s flair was that he succeeded in some many different music forms, including Opera, symphony, chamber music, piano concerto quintet, and even musical comedy.

Mozart married to Constanze in 1782 and lived a lavish life with the increasing success rate which almost brought him to the brink of ruin. He continued to be prolific composure and performer. And in 1786, Mozart successfully premiered his opera music. The Marriage of Figaro in Vienna. Mozart brought opera music to a great level, and some of his works never disappeared. But Mozart opulent and lavish lifestyle coupled with The Austrian-Turkish War caused financial crisis prevailing both sides into a deep depression.

The records say that he was later in his life turned more introvert. In final years of his life before his death, Mozart gave himself a personal recovery and he composed some of his most popular works including the magic flute and final Piano Concerto. He ultimately died on December 5, 1791. He gave us above 600 musical works, and he did this miracle in half of a full lifetime. Today Mozart influence can be heard in the music of Box Bunny cartoon and Rock-and-Roll legendary.
