Leopold: Wow what should we name our little boy Anna Maria?
Anna Maria: We should name him Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
January 27, 1756
Come on Mozart! Time to learn about your music!
Leopold was a composer, a violinist, and an assistant concertmaster at the Salzburg court. He tutored Mozart and wanted him to become a child prodigy.
Coming father! I was just with sister Maria Anna.
Now son I urge you to take up an appointment as Court Organist.
I will, and I want to write music for the church and perform musical pieces for middle-class audiences. If it wasn't for you, Lorenzo Da Ponte, Modern Don Giavanni, Franz Joseph Hayden, George Fredrich Handel I wouldn't have these desires today.
Mozart I am very proud with your contributions to the intellectual lifestyle. You set the way for many other composers. You established public concert halls, lower classes had access to music, and even music itself changed and grew and without you these changes wouldn’t have been possible.
Thank you father.

May we all remember this day 12:55 a.m on December 5, 1791 Mozart has passed away due to a coma. We believe his illness was military fever, but aren't 100%. May the legend that contributed to the choice of artistic and intellectual autonomy in the Enlightenment , and inspired many composers live on.
