Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791) was a leading Austrian composer of the late eighteen century. He was only five years old when he wrote his first minuet, six when he performed before royalty, and eight when he wrote his first symphony. During his short life, Mozart composed over 600 works, and remains one of the world’s most popular classical composers. Ludwig van Beethoven (sixteen years younger than Mozart) was greatly influenced by his work.
