He liked Shostakovich’s works and he said that he will conduct Shostakovich’s “1st Symphony” in Berlin. Shostakovich completed his “2nd Symphony” in 1927, and he started to work on the music for the opera “The Nose”.

Though he lived for a relatively short time, Mozart’s prolific musical career, in which he composed hundreds of musical works, gained him a place among the all time greatest composers. Henry Vieuxtemps was born in 1820 in Verviers, Belgium, a fertile ground for violinists. He had his first lessons from his father, a weaver and amateur violin-maker and player.
During this time, Mozart continued to compose, completing his first symphony at age nine and publishing his first sonatas the same year.

Maria Anna was a talented pianist, and Mozart wrote a number of piano pieces, in particular duets and pieces for two pianos, to play with her.

When he returned to Salzburg he was given the position of court organist (1779) and produced a splendid series of church works, including the famous Coronation Mass.
