Composer. Born as Johannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Theophilus Mozart at 9 Getreidegasse, Salzburg in modern day Austria. ( Amadeus was a sort of nickname). His father, Leopold was a prominent musician, who took his family on a sometimes gruelling tour of Europe, displaying the talents of his son. During their visit to London (1764-1765) the young Mozart was heavily influenced by Johann Christian Bach. He became court musician at the Salzburg court, and in 1781 he moved to Vienna. His prolific output includes 20 operas and between 40 and 49 symphonies. Died in Vienna.
