About the Museum in Memory of the Most Famous Composer in the History of MusicVienna is the city of birth, or the arena of activity, for quite a few famous composers in music history, including Mozart, Schubert, Strauss, Mahler and Hayden. Throughout history, Vienna has become a central place of classical music creation and activity. The most prominent attraction related to the field is the Mozart Museum, which was the home of the great and gifted composer. Here Mozart created some of his brilliant works.
Mozart is known as a composer who transformed from a prodigy child into an incomprehensible musical genius. He was born in the city of Salzburg , but once he became famous he moved to Vienna and began to wander among the various apartments he had allowed himself to rent. In this house he lived and composed between 1784 and 1787, when he was already a composer of renown and status. Some call the place the Figaro House, since it is said that in this house Mozart composed the operas "The Marriage of Figaro" and "Don Giovanni" in 1787.
On the four floors of the museum you can see fascinating exhibits, from which you can learn about the composer's lifestyle and daily conduct, in the elegant and luxurious residence of the wealthy family. You will also see Mozart's life's work - exhibits related to his work - written works, pictures, paintings and artifacts. Throughout the museum you will listen to his works that are played on the loudspeakers of the place. On the ground floor of the museum there is a café and souvenir shop for visitors to enjoy.
The museum is definitely worth a visit because it is actually used as a glimpse into the Viennese culture, life, and history of one of the great cultural foundations of the 18th century and one of the greatest musicians in history.
What's the Story of Mozart's Wonderful Memory? - (Courtesy of Eureka Encyclopedia)Mozart was a musical genius who had already become a legend in his childhood. He wrote his first concerto at the age of 4, the first symphony at the age of six, and wrote a full opera at the age of 12.
These are unimaginable achievements, but it seems that the memory of the composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was even more amazing. As a child, during a visit to Rome with his father and sister, Mozart heard the performance of a work called "Miserere" by composer Gregorio Allegri. This work is so holy that it was forbidden to play it, but rather as part of a ceremony held at the Vatican, the Christian Papal State, a ceremony that takes place only once a year. In addition, because of its holiness, the notes of this work were kept under heavy guard, so that they would not be copied by others.
But history tells us that Mozart as a boy, with his extraordinary memory, managed to write out the notes almost entirely from memory - after only one listening!
