We have hear his beautiful music all our lives, but what do we really know about Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart?
He was born in Salzburg, Austria, which is one of the great musical cities in the world. Even though he was small and weak, and struggled to survive when he was young, he became known as one of the most natural musicians in the world. In fact, he was quite a big star when he was alive.
He died at the young age of 35 after contracting an illness most likely caused by his extensive travels. He left us with some of the most influential pieces of music ever known.
Who knows what great compositions we never got to hear because of his passing.
