Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart 1756-1791

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born in Salzburg in 1756. Accompanied by his father Leopold, in 1763 he undertook a grand tour of Munich, Augsburg, Schwetzingen, Mainz, Frankfurt, Koblenz, Aachen, Brussels and Paris. Everywhere the pair went, the prodigious young Wolfgang Amadeus amazed the audience. Barely seven years old, he played the violin, the harpsichord and the organ; later in life, he went on to compose the most divine music.
