Wolfgang amadeus Mozart?

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was a famous composer who was born in Vienna, Austria, in 1756. He was a child prodigy who wrote his first Symphony at the age of four. (It is unknown if his father had helped with this, although he probably had.

By the age of six, in 1762, he, his father, his mother and his sister, Nannerl, toured around Europe and preformed for various kings and queens. Leopold Mozart -Wolfgang's father- always advertised his children as a year younger than their actual age.

While stopping in England during the Mozarts' European tour, they came across Joseph Haydn, who heard some of Wolfgang's and Nannerl's works. He too, agreed that the Mozarts were prodigies.

At the age of thirty-five, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is found dead in his home. His middle name, Amadeus, means "lover of God". "Deus" is a well-known term for God.

Nearly 200 years after his death, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's reign over classical music is still fresh in our hearts. He composed over 600 works; including three operas, 41 symphonies, and countless concertos, minutes and sonatas. Many believe he was -and still is- the world's greatest composer.
