Happy Birthday Wolfgang!

On January 27, 1756, the great piano prodigy and composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born in Salzburg, Austria.  Mozart would become one of the greatest [and some say greatest] classical music composers.  I call him the quintessential classical music composer.  Mozart died at the too young age of 35, December 5, 1971.  In that short period of time Mozart would be a prolific composer of all genres of classical music, symphonies, sonatas, chamber music, operas, concerti, etc.

Tales wishes a Happy Birthday to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart!









One of the great movies in the classical music gendre is "Amadeus", about the life of Mozart. If you have never scene this riveting movie I suggest you buy the DVR.   It is a classic.

 Here is one small scene from Amadeus:
