Houston Symphony Orchestra Totally Mozart
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born on 27th January, 1756 in Salzburg, Austria. Mozart and his fascination with music started at a very early age. His father was a composer who used to teach Mozart’s elder sister, Nannerl how to play a keyboard. Watching the two go about their work is what sowed the seeds for his love for music. He started playing and composing tunes under the guidance of his father but Mozart wanted to go much further than that. He wanted to learn more than what his father could teach him which led to him taking up the violin to great effect. The family used to take regular trips to Europe and that is where Nannerl and Mozart started playing to audiences around different cities of the continent. That was very valuable education that led to Mozart meeting with quite a few popular musicians of that era. In 1769, He went to Italy with his father and became the member of the Accademia Filarmonica. That Italian adventure lasted for three years till 1771 by the end of which he had composed his first creation, the magnificent solo Exsultate, jubilate,K.165.
When he returned to Salzburg he was given the job as a court musician by the ruler that led him to work across different genres and broaden his horizon. Starting with violins he composed the epics K.126, K.219 and K.218. He then shifted his focus on piano to work and compose sensations like the still loved K.271. These are considered to be the compositions that really started to get him the attention he deserved but there was a problem, he wasn’t too fond of his job. He wanted to compose operas and there weren’t a lot of opportunities to do that in Salzburg. By the time 1777 came around, Mozart quit his job and went to cities like Paris, Munich and Mannheim to look for work but it didn’t work out as he had hoped for and after two years of struggles he had to return home where he became a concertmaster and court organist.
His first commercial breakthrough came in 1781 when his opera Idomeneo debuted in Munich to a lot of acclaim from everywhere. That led to a move to Vienna where he started to work as a freelancer. On 16th July, 1782 Mozart’s opera Die Entfuhrung aus dem Serail made its debut to go on and be an immense success. The next few years were spent staging concerts, as a solo artist, which were hugely popular. He was performing as a pianist during this time but by the time 1785 came, he shifted his focus on opera’s one more time that resulted in the 1786 debut of The Marriage of Figaro. Don Giovanni followed the next year to make it two successes in a row. These operas are considered to be two of his greatest ever compositions that are still played today. More legendary compositions like Symphonies 39,40 and 41, Cosi fan tutte, The Magic Flute, Clarinet Concerto and Ave verum corpus etc followed till his untimely death, aged just thirty five, in 1791 to cement his reputation as one of the true classical icons of all time.
