Traveling throughout the towns of Italy, his recitals were one success after the other, and his opera "Mitridate, re di Ponto" saw its twentieth consecutive performance in Milan. A failed attempt at a commission in Milan led Mozart to understand how fickle society can be, and brought the two back to their home in Salzburg. Mozart's farewells to Milan were tinged with bitterness and he resigned himself to a life as court musician in Salzburg, but the seventeen year old genius ... ... middle of paper ... ...o grow up into the great composer he became. If Leopold had not exerted such an influence over him, Mozart might not have been compelled to work day after day so intently and relentlessly on his compositions later in his life. Mozart's amazing accomplishments may be in part, due to his father's influence.
In 1762, Mozart and his elder sister Maria Anna (best known as Nannerl) who was also a gifted keyboard player, were taken by their father on a short performing tour, of the courts at Vienna and Munich. Encouraged by their reception, they embarked the next year on a longer tour, including two weeks at Versailles, where the children enchanted Louis XV. In 1764 they arrived in London. Here Mozart wrote his first three symphonies, under the influence of Johann Christian Bach, youngest son of Johann Sebastian, who lived in the city. In Paris, Mozart published his first works:four sonatas for clavier: with accompanying violin in 1764.

Mozart is a Classical Era musician who was born on January 27, 1756 in Salzburg, Austria. His father who’s name is Leopold, was the author of a famous violin manual. His father heavily influenced Mozart’s love for music and so he began to learn how to play a harp at the mere age of 3. At age 5, he even began to compose his own musical chords. Although he was far from making great works, he met with many popular composers across Europe.
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born in Salzburg, Austria on January 27th, 1756. He was born to Leopold and Anna Maria Pertl. Leopol was a very successful composer, voilinist, and the assistant concertmaster at the Salzburg court. Mozart showed musical talent at a very young age. By age five he was composing minuets.And at age six he played before the Bavarian Elector and the Austrian Empress.His father taught him, but said teahcing Wolfgang was hard because he knew so much already.
The cold weather and constant travel may have contributed to his later illness. After spending less than a year in Salzburg, the family again departed for Vienna, where Mozart completed his first opera La finta semplice in 1768. Much to Leopold's frustration, the opera was not per... ... middle of paper ... ... concertos, 23 string quartets, 35 violin sonatas, and more than 50 symphonies. Major composers since Mozart's time have worshipped or been in awe of Mozart. Beethoven told his pupil Ries that he (Beethoven) would never be able to think of a melody as great as that of the first movement of Mozart's 24th piano concerto, and did Mozart homage by writing variations on his themes (such as the two sets of Variations for Cello and Piano on themes from Mozart's Magic Flute) and cadenzas to several of the piano concerti, most notably the Concerto No.

In 1763 Luigi returned to Vienna for a third time, by this time his reputation was grow... ... middle of paper ... ... destroyed in the Spanish Civil War in 1936. Among the destroyed was Boccherini's catalogue of music. But fortunately Alfredo Boccherini published a catalogue of his great grandfather's works in 1879. Boccherini began this catalogue in 1760 and worked on it up until his death in 1805.
As his father's alcoholism increased, Ludwig became the main musician. Beethoven's talents were discovered at an early age, and he was sent to Vienna to study under different teachers including Mozart and Hayden. There, Beethoven quickly adopted a reputation of a great piano player, a child prodigy. He gave his first public performance at the age of eight and published his first works at the age of twelve: nine variations, in C Minor, for piano. Christian Goftlob Neefe was sure that Beethoven's talents would make him the new Mozart of the time.
