 The Music of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
However, Mozart’s fame is based on two different frames of reference: firstly, being the most famous child prodigy in music history (as both a performer and a composer) and secondly, his unquestioned brilliance as an adult composer of Classical symphonies, operas, chamber music, sonatas, church music, and concerti for various instruments.
Mozart's initial success as a free-lance performing artist, composing nearly all of the music he played, eventually faded since the Viennese tired of his novelty, and their generous support of his work wore off.

Mozart was born in the city of Salzburg, part of the independant clerical state Erzfürstbistum Salzburg, Holy Roman Empire (in that time not part of Austria) and christened Johannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Theophilus Mozart, after his grandfather on his mother's side and after the Saint on his date of birth, Johannes Chrysostomus.
Mozart lived much of his life in Salzburg but traveled Europe extensively and spent his final years in Vienna, where one of the apartments he lived in is still to be visited at Domgasse 5 behind St. Stephen's Cathedral.
