Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (27 January 1756 – 5 December 1791), baptised as Johannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Theophilus Mozart, was a prolific composer.
He composed from the age of five and performed before European royalty. At 17, he was engaged as a court musician in Salzburg but while visiting Vienna in 1781, he was dismissed from his Salzburg position. He chose to stay in Vienna, where he composed many of his best-known symphonies, concertos, and operas, and portions of the Requiem, which was largely unfinished at the time of his death. He was survived by his wife Constanze and two sons.
