-On September 5, 1791 the great Austrian musician and composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart passed away at the early age of 35.
This Austrian musician is widely recognized as one of the greatest composers in the history of Western music. With Haydn and Beethoven he brought to its height the achievements of the Viennese Classical School. Unlike any other composer in history, he wrote in all the musical genres of his day and excelled in every one.
Born in 1756, his father was also a musician and a composer who taught music to little Mozart and his sister.
Mozart’s father took them to a series of trips in which they visited Vienna, the Netherlands, France, England and Italy. At that time Mozart had already started composing music.
From 1751 onward Mozart spent most of his time in Vienna. During his short 35 year life the hardworking artist composed and wrote 25 piano concertos, 40 piano sonatas, 49 symphonies and 25 string quartets, not to mention numerous operas and other music pieces.
