Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, 1756-1791

In Concert

Mozart c. 1780, detail from portrait by Johann Nepomuk della Croce

Mozart couldn't hide his Angelhood. Angels have one keynote above every other virtue They possess; and that is great joyousness. They know, because there is no fear in Them, that life is good and beautiful; and that's all that Mozart wanted to reveal.

A prolific artist, Austrian composer Wolfgang Mozart created a string of operas, concertos, symphonies and sonatas that profoundly shaped classical music.

Born on January 27, 1756, in Salzburg, Austria, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was a musician capable of playing multiple instruments who started playing in public at the age of 6. Over the years, Mozart aligned himself with a variety of European venues and patrons, composing hundreds of works that included sonatas, symphonies, masses, chamber music, concertos and operas, marked by vivid emotion and sophisticated textures.

By 13, Mozart could listen to music once and then write out the entire score from memory. His musical genius allowed him significant fame, until his untimely death at age 35 in 1791.

Flower has expressed that Mozart was a Music Deva of a very high state of evolution. He was an Angel of Music. Mozart came in with holy joy and that was his gift to mankind. Within Mozart's music hovers endlessly a superhuman gaiety, an eternal divine laughter. Within his music is a divine levity which is like the whispered laughter of stars being sublime in spite of its exuberance.

Mozart played the harpsichord at the age of three. At the age of four, he composed. At the age of six, he was already appearing in public concerts throughout that part of the world in which he lived.
