Short history of Mozart!

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born on January 27, 1756 and died Dec. 5, 1791. A prolific artist and Austrian composer he created a string of operas, concertos, symphonies and sonatas that profoundly shaped classical music. One other composer of the time who came close to matching Mozart’s genius was Franz Joseph Haydn. The two became great friends, learned much from each other, and together created the models that future composers used to write symphonies and string quartets.

He will share with you

Mozart speaks to you directly:

How he was teased on the playground as a child.
Why he changed his name from Theophilis to Amadeus.
How he was rumored to be a dwarf instead of a child of 9.
The poem he wrote for his pet starling when it died.
What he thought about the soundtrack from the 1984 movie Amadeus.
How he likes scatological humor and his new composition to demonstrate.
What animal costume he would wear if he were a rock star like Elton John.
His joy that “The Magic Flute” helps microbes break down sewage.
Why archbishop of Salzburg’s secretary kicked him in the butt.
and much more.

And we will hear excerpts of his music:
