Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (Austrian) (27 January 1756 5 December 1791), was a prolific
and influential composer of the Classical era. He composed over 600 works, many
acknowledged as pinnacles of symphonic, concertante, chamber, piano, operatic, and
choral music. He is among the most enduringly popular of classical composers. Mozart
showed prodigious ability from his earliest childhood in Salzburg. Already competent on
keyboard and violin, he composed from the age of five and performed before European
royalty. Mozart learned voraciously from others, and developed a brilliance and maturity
of style that encompassed the light and graceful along with the dark and passionate. His
influence on subsequent Western art music is profound. Beethoven wrote his own early
compositions in the shadow of Mozart, of whom Joseph Haydn wrote that "posterity will
not see such a talent again in 100 years."
