Upon his eleventh birthday, commissions flooded in not only from the court but from the bourgeoisie, too. He wrote one act of an oratorio to be performed in March, and followed it by a Latin comedy, Apollo and Hyacinthus. In September of 1767, the Mozart family left for Vienna where, after recovering from small pox, Mozart would be inspired by his father to write his first opera, La Finta Semplice. So impressed with Vienna was Mozart that he and his father set off again for Italy alone in 1769. 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.
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.
Mozart and his older sister Maria Anna "Nannerl" were the couple's only surviving children and their musical education began at a very young age. The archbishop of the Salzburg court, Sigismund von Schrattenbach was very supportive of the Mozart children's remarkable activities. By the time Mozart was five years old, he began composing minuets. The next year, he and his sister were taken to Munich and Vienna to play a series of concert tours. Both children played the harpsichord, but Mozart had also mastered the violin.
Between the years 1782 and 1785, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart wrote six string quartets which were dedicated to his friend and fellow composer, Joseph Haydn. These quartets, known as the "Haydn Quartets," were among Mozart's "first six masterpieces in the medium" (Keller, 64). In composing these works, Mozart was inspired by Haydn's recently published Opus 33, which is also a set of six string quartets. When Haydn wrote his Opus 33 in 1781, it was the first time he had written for the string quartet in a period of ten years. With the six pieces of Opus 33, Haydn established a style of chamber music that he described as being in "an entirely new, very special manner" (Pauly, 45).
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.
Mozart’s letters prove that he took the music of the eighteenth century and reinvented it using perspective gained in the course of events in his lifetime. (Johann Chrysostom) Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born in Salzburg, Austria on January 27, 1756 to composer, violinist, and theorist Leopold Mozart and his wife Maria Anna (Sadie 276). Wolfgang was the ultimate definition of a child prodigy. He mastered one of his sister’s music books at the age of four and wrote his first compositions, Andante and Allegro K1a and 1b, at only five years old (277). The public first witnessed young Mozart’s talent when he performed a dancing role in Sigismundus Hungarie rex at Salzburg University in September of 1761 (277).
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart played numerous types of instruments and at an early age. When he was six years old, Mozart was already an advanced performer of keyboard instruments and a violinist, while he was demonstrating a capacity for improvisation and reading scores. His father, Leopold, decided to educate his only daughter Maria Anna “Nannerl” as a source of income. In 1762, his father, Leopold, took Nannerl at the age of eleven and Wolfgang, age six, to the court of Munich and Vienna. In 1763, they to a long journey of three and half years to the courts of Paris, London, The Hague, and Zurich performing as child prodigies.
His given names were Johann Chrysostom Wolfgang Theophilus, the last of which is Gottlieb in German, and Amadeus in Latin. He used Wolfgang and Amadeus in his signature, so he is generally known by these two names. He displayed marked musical gifts very early, playing the keyboard confidently when aged four, composing his first pieces for it aged five, and quickly mastering the violin. Leopold was keen to exhibit his son's extraordinary talents, along with those of his gifted pianist-daughter, Maria-Anna (called Nannerl) (1751--1829), and he undertook a series of tours across Europe with them when Mozart was just six years old. In 1767 the family went to Vienna for five months, where Mozart wrote an opera buffa (comic opera) for the Emperor, La finta semplice (trans, the Pretend Simpleton); and a Singspiel (a German-language opera with some spoken dialogue), Bastien und Bastienne (1769), commissioned by Dr Franz Anton Mesmer.
Vanucci taught at the seminary of San Martino. Luigi made his first debut as a cellist at the age of 13 and was later played at the local feast day celebrations. In 1757 Luigi went to Rome presenting himself to the cellist Constanzi, maestro di capella at St. Peters. Luigi played for Canstanzi, and after hearing Luigi, Constanzi disn't hesitate to take Luigi as a student. After about a year in Rome Luigi and his father were asked to go to Vienna to play in the orchestra of the imperial capital at the court theatre.
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.
