During his final years in Vienna, 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 early death at the age of 35.
In 1743, he was appointed as fourth violinist in the musical establishment of Count Leopold Anton von Firmian, the ruling Prince-Archbishop of Salzburg.
In the fourth year of his age his father, for a game as it were, began to teach him a few minuets and pieces at the clavier.
These began with an exhibition in 1762 at the court of Prince-elector Maximilian III of Bavaria in Munich, and at the Imperial Courts in Vienna and Prague.
Wolfgang met Josef Mysliveček and Giovanni Battista Martini in Bologna, and was accepted as a member of the famous Accademia Filarmonica.
Neither visit was successful, though the Munich journey resulted in a popular success with the premiere of Mozart's opera La finta giardiniera.
Mozart became acquainted with members of the famous orchestra in Mannheim, the best in Europe at the time.
While Mozart was in Paris, his father was pursuing opportunities of employment for him in Salzburg.
The quarrel with the archbishop came to a head in May: Mozart attempted to resign and was refused.
The debate ended when Mozart was dismissed by the archbishop, freeing himself both of his employer and his father's demands to return.
Near the height of his quarrels with Colloredo, Mozart moved in with the Weber family, who had moved to Vienna from Mannheim.
In the course of 1782 and 1783, Mozart became intimately acquainted with the work of Johann Sebastian Bach and George Frideric Handel as a result of the influence of Gottfried van Swieten, who owned many manuscripts of the Baroque masters.
Haydn in 1785 told Mozart's father: "I tell you before God, and as an honest man, your son is the greatest composer known to me by person and repute, he has taste and what is more the greatest skill in composition.". Since space in the theaters was scarce, he booked unconventional venues: a large room in the Trattnerhof .
It was a part-time appointment, paying just 800 florins per year, and required Mozart only to compose dances for the annual ball

Final silkscreen project mid-process! Fun fact: I’m a classical music nerd. The Planets has always been my favorite. It was the first symphony I ever saw, and I walked down the aisle to the acoustic version of one of the planets! #silkscreen#printmaking#art#artstudent#classicalmusic
I have heard many compliments about my singing from lots of people in my life, but none came as weighted as this one - got the “distinction” of the art song group. — was singing Per la gloria d’adorarvi by Giovanni Bononcini- judicator was Valdine Anderson. Lol! When she was giving me notes, her voice and gestures were just so graceful, I could just listen to her forever! My teacher Elizabeth Raycroft did an incredible job training me.#singer#soprano#edmonton#recital#yeg#opera#artsong#classicalmusic#music#diva
Came across this quote this week and thought I would share it! If you start something new you have to make that switch even if you feel like your already behind! It’s never too late to start! Especially piano 😂

William Grant Still (1895-1978) was one of the leading African American composers of his generation with a characteristic style that fused jazz and blues with traditional orchestral melodies. In 1931, Still's Symphony No. 1 in A-flat "Afro-American" was premiered by the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra – the first time a major American orchestra performed a symphony by an African American composer. In 1936, he became the first African American to conduct a noted American orchestra when he led the Los Angeles Philharmonic at the Hollywood Bowl. Still was honored with Guggenheim Fellowships in both 1934 and 1935, and has been nicknamed the “Dean of African American composers” for his life and rich legacy of significant contributions to American music.

Ojalá nos gustase leer tanto como decimos que nos gustan los libros. Ojalá nos preocupase comprenderlos tanto como leerlos. Y ojalá nos interesásemos por cuestionarlos tanto como comprenderlos. "... si tan sólo la duda llegase a encontrar una oportunidad para resonar en la mente de cualquier ciudadano capitalista. Y si tal individuo se permitiese, en lugar de reprimir esas ideas, cuestionar la versión que solía defender y considerar una concepción alternativa del mundo. Por tanto, supongo como el primer y fundamental paso, el de voltear la vista hacia nosotros mismos, para percatarnos de que somos los protagonistas de la historia". (Yo 😊). P.D. hoy encontré dos fotos viejas: una, la que estoy publicando, mi primera foto con pelo corto (2015). Pero además vi en las redes sociales una foto de una escena de #theartofgettingby y recordé a esa mujer que varias veces me hizo cuestionarme mi homosexualidad: la hermosísima @emmaroberts 🙊🙈📷🎥🎞🎬📼📹 ¿Qué pieza le recomendaría a la talentosa y preciosa Emma? El vals en La menor B 150, de Chopin. 🎹🎵 #emmaroberts#chopin#music#classicalmusic#instaboy#instagram#instagay#writing#hairstyle#oldpic#instagood#instagayboy#boy#gay#picoftheday#actress#freddiehighmore#capitalism#pictures#oldphoto
