Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, 1756 to 1791, was a child prodigy and prolific composer, composing over 600 works in his short lifetime.
Wolfgang's father was himself a composer and music teacher, and by the age of only five Wolfgang was already excellent on the keyboard and violin and even composing his own pieces! His sister, 4 year's older than him, was also an excellent musician. The family travelled throughout Europe, with Wolfgang and his sister performing and delighting their audiences.
When Wolfgang was 17 he was employed as court musician in Salzburg, Austria. This was the beginning of a restless career for the young man, whose genius often made him unhappy and difficult to be around! It is possible that, like many child celebrities these days, he had a hard time dealing with the lack of attention he received as he grew older. In 1791, at just 35 years old, Wolfgang died in Austria's capital city, Vienna, having lived his last few years in financial distress.
Fun Fact: Mozart had composed his first opera - at the request of an emperor - by the age of 13!
"Neither a lofty degree of intelligence nor imagination nor both together go to the making of genius. Love, love, love, that is the soul of genius."
Mozart plays his violin on this colouring page. He was born in 1756, but his music is still very famous and popular.
"I pay not attention whatever to anybody's praise or blame. I simply follow my own feelings." So said Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, pictured in this quotation poster.
