Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart | Compositions | AllMusic
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born to Leopold and Anna Maria Pertl Mozart in Salzburg, Austria. He had an elder sister Maria Anna whom he called by the nickname "Nannerl". His baptized name according to records is Joannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Theophilus Mozart. His father Leopold Mozart was not just a deputy Kapellmeister in the court orchestra of the Archbishop of Salzburg, but was also a minor composer and an experienced teacher. Leopold was the only teacher for his children, and taught them languages and academic subjects apart from music. At a very young age, Wolfgang was keen to progress beyond what he was taught. His first composition and his initiative efforts with the violin came as a surprise to Leopold. Leopold eventually gave up composing and devoted his whole time in furthering his son's career right from the age of seven.

In 1780, Idomeneo, widely regarded as Mozart's first great opera, premiered in Munich. The following year, he visited Vienna in the company of his employer, the harsh Prince-Archbishop Colloredo. When they returned to Salzburg, Mozart, who was then Konzertmeister, became increasingly rebellious, not wanting to follow the whims of the archbishop relating to musical matters, and expressing these views he soon fell out of favor with him, and was ultimately fired. Subsequently Mozart chose to settle and develop his own freelance career in Vienna after its aristocracy began to take an interest in him. Mozart made Vienna the "base of his operations" for the rest of his life.
