Example text

Sadly, the journey proved to be expensive and Mozart starting pawning his valuables to fund his lifestyle. His mother died on the 3rd July 1778; due to Mozart’s financial situation she did not receive the care that would have kept her alive. Whilst Mozart was away searching for work, his father was also looking for jobs for him. Unfortunately (for Wolfgang), Leopold’s search focused on Salzburg! Finally, Leopold succeeded in securing a job for Wolfgang as a court organist and concertmaster for his old boss Archbishop Colloredo.

Oh Vienna Only two years into his new job, Mozart seriously fell out with the Archbishop. During a visit to Vienna, Wolfgang was offered the opportunity to perform in front of the new Emperor, Joseph II - and would have been paid a fee of almost 230 florins - half his yearly wage for one performance! The Archbishop however denied him the opportunity and Mozart handed in his resignation. Instead of allowing this straight away, the Archbishop actually dismissed him - by getting an assistant to kick Mozart’s backside out of a door!

The Most Amazing Facts As is often the case with the truly great musicians, Mozart was also a brilliant mathematician. A Story about Mozart goes thus: Knowing that he liked to stay in bed well past noon, a friend visited him early in the morning. Getting no reply from Mozart when he tried to wake him, the friend went to a piano and played a piece of music but stopped before the final chord. Mozart instantly got out of bed and played it, unable to ‘live with’ an uncompleted tune. Mozart was a devout catholic and a fair proportion of his work was religious in nature.
