This is probably about only three quarters of his works Mozart Mozart was one of the most, if not, the most famous composer the world has ever seen. There is only one explanation for this: Mozart's music had to have come from something or someone that was more than the common man. Childhood Mozart was a superb musician as a child, learning how to play the piano and the violin. He was composing at age five. Mozart's main teacher was his father, who was excited about his son being a musician. Mozart spent the great bulk of his early childhood in Austria. Spiritual & Personal Life Wolfgang Mozart's parents were devout Catholics, and they raised a good son who knew and worshiped Christ. The composer's spiritual life is overlooked a lot, but those who have read the letters which Mozart sends his father know of how spiritual this man really was. Here is an excerpt from one of those letters: "God is ever before my eyes. I realize His omnipotence and fear His anger, but I also recognize His love, His compassion, and His tenderness towards His creatures. He will never forsake His own. If it is according to His will, so let it be according to mine." Conclusion Much or all of Mozart's music is considered "classical", not only because of his style of composing, but because of the feeling felt in his music and compositions. Thank you for reading, and I hope you learned something about Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. By: Isaiah Pack Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
