Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Mozart – that is the composer who wrote the Magic Flute and Don Giovanni, the Requiem and the Coronation Mass, the Little Serenade and the Musical Jokes, the Violet and the Evening Feeling, the Clarinet Concert and the Jupiter Symphony, the Gran Partita and the Quartet Dissonances. What remains of this great composer, if we reduce him to a single genre, namely his piano music? And if we even leave aside the piano concerts, the chamber music and the songs with piano accompaniment? – Surprisingly, quite a lot!
In fact, his piano work alone allows us to roughly follow the path of his life!
