MOZART, Wolfgang Amadeus
b Salzburg, 27 January 1756
d Vienna, 5 December 1791, aged thirty-five

His father, Leopold, was a violinist and composer. Wolfgang was composing by the age of five, and Leopold used his gifted son to his own commercial advantage, introducing him to various courts throughout Europe. In 1769, father and son travelled together to Italy, where Wolfgang had an audience with the Pope, wrote an opera, and was feted wherever he went. In 1777 he journeyed to Paris, this time with his mother, but the months spent there were unfruitful, and his mother died, so he returned to Sahburg. The Archbishop of Salzburg took him into his entourage; but Mozart hated his almost menial position and resigned. Moving to Vienna, he married, and lived frugally by teaching. Despite the success of his operas there were no lucrative commissions. Having become a Freemason, he borrowed money from his fellows, in order to live. He was appointed court composer to the Emperor, but the salary was nominal. He refused the lucrative post of Kapellmeister in Berlin in 1789, because he loved Vienna. For all his success he died in poverty, of uraemia, and was buried in an unmarked grave.
