Mozart’s Early Training Established Foundation for Future Success
Manufacturing professional Michael Muench enjoys numerous leisure activities, including listening to music. Michael Muench cites Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart as his favorite composer. Mozart was a prolific composer whose work had a major impact on the future of music.
When his older sister began studying keyboard, three-year old Mozart looked on. He demonstrated his musical aptitude very quickly and soon received instruction from his father, an accomplished musician. Mozart completed his first composition for violin and clarinet at age five. During his youth, Mozart’s father took the young virtuoso and his sister on several tours to visit courts throughout Europe. As a teenager, Mozart received several commissions as well as his first appointment as an assistant concertmaster.
Building on these early foundations, Mozart grew to become one of the most famous composers of his era. In total, he composed more than 600 works, including symphonies and operas. He has achieved an enduring legacy as one of the most popular and influential of the classical composers.
