Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756–1791) was a child prodigy born in Salzburg, Austria. Hailing from a musical family, Mozart began studying music with his father, Leopold, an accomplished musician who wrote a book about violin playing and technique. Mozart was immensely talented; he began writing his first piano concerto at the age of five and was performing violin, harpsicord, and viola for Austrian royalty one year later with his sister, Maria Anna. At the age of seven, Mozart traveled around Europe with his sister and father, performing in more than 15 cities and publishing his first compositions. Mozart’s talent led him to work as a commissioned opera composer in Italy, a court musician in Salzburg, and a musician for the archbishop in Vienna. A prolific composer, Mozart mastered many different styles, including Italian opera and music in the Austrian tradition, and composed more than 600 works in his almost 36 years.
