Wolfgang A. Mozart

Greatest classical composer

Greatest classical composer

Born in Salzburg, Mozart showed from early childhood musical talents that coined the term “Wunderkind”, musical prodigy. Already fluent on the piano and violin, he composed from the age of five and performed in front of the European royalty and high society.


At 17, Mozart was engaged as a musician at the Salzburg court but grew restless and travelled through Europe in search of inspiration and found his place in Vienna. “I assure you that this place is gorgeous – and for my profession it is the best place in the world” which lead to the creations of his famous operas: “The Marriage of Figaro”, “Don Giovanni”, “Cosi fan tutte” and the famous “Magic Flute”.


Work

Vienna was the place where his career blossomed and he created most of his music pieces. Mozart composed more than 600 works, many of which are acknowledged as pinnacles of symphonic, concertante, chamber, operatic, and choral music. He is among the greatest and most enduringly celebrated classical composers.


Mozart often performed as a pianist and soon established himself as the finest keyboard player in Vienna. He also prospered as a composer and due to the success of his work, it was performed throughout the German-speaking parts of Europe.


Mozart’s legacy

Mozart died after a brief illness in Vienna at the age of 34. Despite his early death Mozart was and still is until today one of the finest and most significant musicians in the world. To honor and celebrate the Mozart’s life work, the Kursalon performs a fine selection of his beautiful compositions on a regular basis.

Excellent concert last night in the Kursalon. It surpassed all our expectations and it, together with the sumptious, delicious meal we had in the Das Johann Restaurant beforehand made it the highlight of our 3 day trip to Vienna. We would highly recommend it as a "must do" while visiting there. Seamus and Mary. Ireland.
