Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756 – 1791), was a prolific and influential composer of the Classical Style Period (1750 - 1830). He composed over 600 works before his death at only 35, many acknowledged as pinnacles of symphonic, chamber, piano, operatic, and choral music. He is among the most enduringly popular of all composers.
I was surprised to find that there's not really a Mozart thread here yet. Everyone post your favs. Here are mine.
I love #40, especially the second movement. Truly music to sooth the savage breast.
I'm normally not a big choral fan, but nobody writes for voices like Mozart. Here's the Lacrimosa from his famous and wonderful Requiem Mass in D minor which he wrote on his death bed.
