Mozart was born on January 27, 1756 in Salzburg, Austria to Leopold Mozart and Anna Maria Pertl. A child prodigy, Mozart began composing music and performing before royalty at the age of 5. During his childhood, his father took Mozart and his sister, Maria Anna, on a grand European tour to perform at the courts of Munich, Paris, and London.

Sadly, death came at a young age for Mozart. He became gravely ill and died in his home at the age of 35. In his short lifetime, he composed over 600 pieces and remains one of the most popular classical composers to this day.
