More about the Mozart Manuscript Wrap Journal
More than two hundred years after his death, the musical compositions of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart continue to inspire people from all walks of life. With their power to simultaneously invoke passion, rapture and profound serenity, these technically brilliant creations have a universal appeal and exert an effortless hold over their listeners. The piece of ballet music from Mozart on this journal's cover is entitled La Chasse,which means hunting or chasing. It's believed to have been composed in Paris in 1778. Chasing and hunting themes with an erotic subtext were popular in ballet and pantomime performances of the time, which typically featured shepherds, shepherdesses and Cupid frolicking together.
Mozart was born in Salzburg, Austria, in 1756. His musical talent as a child prodigy entranced audiences who were deeply moved by the magical, inspiring performances he gave. He excelled in a wide range of genres including opera, piano concertos, symphonies, string quartets, influencing an untold number of composers and musicians. Despite his achievements, Mozart was viewed more as an extraordinary pianist during his lifetime, and not as much for his magnificent compositions. His story ended on a melancholy note- he died alone and impoverished, buried in a mass grave. However as is the case with other visionaries, like van Gogh, Mozart's brilliance was realized after his death and he is now one of the most admired composers of all time.
