John 1--The Word Became Flesh(1-1-14)
1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2He was with God in the beginning.  3Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4In him was life, and that life was the light of men.

Biography     

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart 1756-1791

Born in Salzburg, Austria on Jan. 27, 1756; full name- Johannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Gottlieb Mozart; he was baptized as Johannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Theophilus Mozart.  Mozart is named after his grandfather on his mother's side and after the Saint on his date of birth, Johannes Chrysostomus.

Parents: Leopold Mozart - composer and violinist, concertmaster at the archiepiscopal court, and in 1763, vice-kapellmeister at Salzburg court; and Anna Maria Pertl, daughter of Wolfgang Nikolaus Pertl, an official from Sankt Gilgen Sibling: Maria Anna (Nannerl) Mozart

At his age 3: started to play the keyboard Age 5: started composing minuets

1763-1766 toured Europe with his father and sister played for Louis XV at Versailles and George III in London 1764 wrote his first three symphonies; also met Johann Christian Bach.
By his teenage years, he mastered the piano, violin, and harpsichord 1768 completed first opera, La finta semplice (The Simple Pretense)

1769-1773 made three trips to ItalyIn Rome, there was a myth that Mozart attended the performance of Allegri's Misere.  He wanted the score but when no one agreed he wrote down the music from memory.

1770 Mitridate, re di Ponte (Mithridates, King of Pontus) performed in Milan which was Mozart's first major opera

1772 appointed concertmaster in the orchestra of Archbishop of Salzburg.. During this period, he wrote many sacred works.

1777 toured with his mother hoping to find a court position; traveled to Mannheim where he met and fell in love with Aloysia Weber

1778, July Anna Maria Mozart died

1779 unable to find a court position, Mozart went back to Salzburg; appointed as court organist to the Archbishop of Salzburg

1781 resigned from his position due to increasing tension and disagreements between Mozart and the Archbishop.  Mozart stayed in Vienna instead of returning to Salzburg.  Mozart's resignation and his move to Vienna put a strain in his relationship with his father.

1782 married Constanze Weber in Vienna's St. Stephen's Cathedral.  After Mozart's death, Constanze married Danish diplomat Georg Nikolaus von Nissen.  In Vienna, Mozart supported his family by performing in      public and private, teaching , and composing.  His first opera written     after his residency in Vienna, Abduction from Seraglio became a success.

1786 The Marriage of Figaro, the first of three operas Mozart collaborated with librettist, Lorenza da Ponte, premiered at the           Burg Theater.

1787 became composer of Imperial and Royal Chamber with an annual salary of 800fl.  His father, Leopold, died on May 28, 1787.  Don Giovanni premiered in Prague at the National Theater.

1790 Cosi fan tutte premiered at Burg Theater.  Mozart declined an opportunity to compose in London.

1791 composed dance music for the Vienna Court; publishers began to pay fees for the rights to publish his works; appointed assistant to the Cathedral Kapellmeister at St. Stephens with no pay.  Mozart was already feeling ill in Prague while finishing La clemenza di Tito.

Dec. 5, 1791, a few minutes before 1AM, Mozart died of rheumatic fever.

The Mozart family: Maria Anna, Mozart, painting of Anna Maria, and Leopold.











His Works music in three stages:      early      1761-1772   middle   1772-1781  late        1781-1791 best known works
Mozart composed over 600 works including:21 stage and opera works, 15 Masses, over 50 symphonies, 25 piano concertos, 12 violin concertos, 27 concert arias, 17 piano sonatas, 26 string quartets, and many other pieces.

His style was very unique, unlike many of the musical styles of his time.  People did not appreciate his radical music because they did not understand

Mozart's complex and extraordinary music.  In his later years, Mozart incorporates many musical elements and style from different countries into his works.  His late works include three of his most famous operas, The Marriage of Figaro, Don Giovanni, Cosi fan tutte, written in collaboration with Lorenza da Ponte and his last three church pieces, Mass in C Minor, Ave Verum Corpus, and Requiem.  Both the Mass in C Minor and Requiem remain unfinished.


            

Constanze watches as Mozart, on his deathbed, works on the Requiem in this idealized depiction created years later.
Mozart conducts a rehearsal of his Requiem in this romanticized image of his last day.

Shortly before the Coronation of the Emperor Leopold, and before Mozart received the commission to go to Prague, an unsigned letter was handed to him by an unknown messenger which, with many flattering remarks, contained the question whether Mozart would like to undertake the composition of a Requiem, for what price, and how soon he would be able to deliver it.

Mozart, who was accustomed to take no step without consulting his wife, related to her this strange commission, and at the same time mentioned his desire to try his hand at this type of work too, the more so as the elevated and exalted style of church music was always close to his genius. She advised him to accept the commission. He therefore wrote to the unknown gentleman to say that he would write the Requiem for a certain sum; he could not exactly state the time he would require to complete it; but he would like to know the destination to which he was to deliver the work when it was finished. The same messenger shortly reappeared, bringing not only the agreed honorarium with him, but also the promise that, as he had been so reasonable in his price, he would receive a generous additional payment on handing over the work. He was moreover to write according to the mood and frame of his mind, but he was not to trouble to try and find out the name of his patron, for this search would certainly be in vain....
