THE STORY OF Mozart (1756-1791)
DID YOU KNOW. . .
Mozart is acknowledged as the most naturally gifted genius the world of music has ever known.
At age 4 he learned to play the harpsichord; a year later he was already composing.
Mozart spent about half his short life on tour, first with his family--his sister also performed at the keyboard--then by himself.
Although they recognized him as a brilliant performer, audiences did not appreciate his music.
He died while only 35 and was buried in an unmarked pauper's grave.
Narrated by Arthur Hannes
