He composed his first symphony at the age of 8. His middle name means "loved of God." And Austrian Emperor Joseph II accused his music of having "too many notes." Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756–1791), one of the great masters, composed more than 600 works of beauty and brilliance in just over 20 years.
According to Professor Robert Greenberg, Mozart's music combined the pure lyricism of song with dramatic timing, depth of expression, and technical mastery of the complexities of phrase structure and harmony that allowed him to create a body of work unique in the repertoire.
This program is led by Joan Jamison, MME. Share Joan’s enthusiasm for great music and discover a different artist or genre of music each month. A short DVD will provide information and background. Major works will be presented and discussed.
