Happy Mozart’s 268th Birthday!
Born January 27, 1756, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is 268 years old today. I do not believe the rumor that he was born in Boulder. Arguably the Beatles of his time, or vice versa, his ear for melody remains unmatched. Putting the Beatles in the same sentence is a BOLD move, and one with which I am quite comfortable.Today marks the birthday of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, one of the most prolific and influential composers of the classical era. Born on January 27, 1756, in Salzburg, now part of modern-day Austria, Mozart’s musical genius became apparent at a very young age. He was a child prodigy, demonstrating exceptional musical ability from as early as age five. His father, Leopold Mozart, a notable composer and musician himself, nurtured his son’s talent, taking him on extensive tours across Europe where young Mozart performed before royalty and public audiences.
