5 December 1791 one of the greatest composers of history of music passed away….. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, at age 35.
The world lost one of the greatest geniuses in history of music.
Along with Ludwig van Beethoven, Mozart is the most famous and most respected composer in all fields of music.
(with the exception that Beethoven composed only one Opera…. “Fidelio”)
Operas, symphonies, Piano Sonatas, Violin Concertos, String quartets, String Quintets, Sacred music, Piano Concertos, Horn Concertos, Woodwind concertos and more.
All of Mozart’s music is a huge, huge treasure for humanity. ❤
I love all Mozart’s music but what made me love and admire Mozart was his extraordinary Operas.
If someone asks me what I would take to a desert Island, besides of his beautiful piano Sonatas, Woodwind concertos, String quartets and Violin Concertos, it would be definitely the Mozart/da Ponte Operas…. the opera of operas… “Don Giovanni” (which in my opinion is the greatest masterpiece of History of Opera) “Le Nozze di Figaro” and “Cosi fan Tutte” which are always a joy to my heart to listen.
His two final Operas, Die Zauberflöte (The Magic Flute) and “La Clemenza di Tito” are also my personal favorites.
The world is a better and more beautiful place, because we all are very lucky and fortunate to listen to all Mozart’s beautiful music.
Yes, on December 5 of 1791, the world lost Mozart but his spirit still lives with all of us, in 2016, through his inmortal, beautiful music which makes our lives richer and more beautiful.
Thank you Johannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Theophilus Mozart, for your huge treasure that you gave to humanity
