Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Mozart6 Mozart3 Mozart2

Mozart was a musical prodigy. He began composing at the age of 5 and began performing on piano and violin at age 6. Mozart only lived to be 35, but he composed all kinds of music – operas, symphonies, concertos, masses, and much more! In fact, he composed so many pieces that after his death a special system was created just to keep track of them all!
