Transcript of Mozart
Death Date, Place, Cause, and Age At Death
Because of poor health, I died on December 5th, 1791 at age 35. My funeral was small; my family was poor.
I was a busy and conductive composer, and a talented musician.
I always seemed poor because I spent a lot of money on rent. I didn't have a lot of freedom in my job, and I was misstreeted. I was interested in making operas and in new mechanical toys that were appearing.
I was home schooled. I learned math, reading, writing, and of course, music.
Date and Place of Birth
I was born on January 27, 1756 in Salzburg, which is in Austria. Salzburg was ruled by Prince Archbisho (when I was born).
Growing Up, I had a mom, a dad, and a sister. Five of my brothers and sisters died before I was born. When my sister was 7 years old, she was playing good music. At 3 years old,
was playing the same music. My father, Leopold, took us all over Europe to perform. Some
times, we performed in front of royalty. When I was 11, I came down with small pox.
Me as a little boy
My older sister, Nannerl
My dad's name was Johann Georg Leopold. My mom's name is Anna Maria Pertl. My older sister's name is Maria Anna Walgurga Ignatia Mozart. I had 2 brothers and 3 sisters, all named Johann and Maria, that died before I was born.
My Older Sister
My full name is Joannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Theophilus Mozart, but I just liked to be called Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, despite "Amadeus" not actually being in my normal name. "Amadeus" and "Theophilus" both mean "beloved of God", so there
I couldn't BEAR loud noises. As such, I hated the flute and the trumpet.
I was so small and weak when I was born that my father called my birth a miracle.
Legend has it that at the age of two, I identified a pig's squeal as a G sharp.
I wrote over 600 pieces of music in my life time.
