Mozart was born January 27,1756 in Salzburg,Austria. At the age of three Mozart was already showing remarkable talent. He was playing the keyboard by age four as well as composing and playing for Royalty. Mozart was dubbed a "Wunderkind" translated "child prodigy". Mozart had by the age of thirteen written concertos, sonatas, symphonies, a German operetta, chamber music, piano music, piano sonatas, violin sonatas, string quartets, and church music. He represents one of the great peaks in the history of music. Hes written in almost every genre. His father taught him how to play the harpsichord, violin, and organ. In 1771 Mozart was appointed concertmaster to the archbishop of Salzburg. Mozarts last three string quartets were written for the King. Each piece of Wolfgang's music had complex emotional elements, such as joy, grief, rage, and suffering. He expressed psychological insight into the characters in his operas. This was not typical in operas written by other composers. Every year, Salzburg has a Mozart festival. Other cities also have festivals where Wolfgang's music is celebrated and played. Wolfgang's music and operas are still popular and performed throughout the world today.
