Happy 259th Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart!

Happy Birthday Wolfgang Amadeus!
On January 27, 1756 probably the most influential composer in the classical era of music, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, was born in Salzburg, Austria.  Despite this quintessential classical music composer short life of only 35 years, he was prolific in all genres of classical music: symphonies, operas, concerti [piano, clarinet, violin, flute, horn] , and much chamber music [ex. string quartets].  Not only was Mozart prolific in all forms of classical music, he was brilliant in his compositions in all his pieces.

Mozart, along with Beethoven and J.S. Bach are my top three favorite composers.

                  Happy Birthday Mozart!
