Little Mozart’s father began to learn to play several minuets from the game, and Amadeus managed to play them without mistake.
On January 27, at eight o’clock in the evening, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born in Salzburg. He was baptized the next day under the name Joannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Theophilus Mozart (Theophilus was later translated into Amadeus, which actually means Bogolyub). Mozart’s father Leopold was a musician, deputy chaplain of the Archbishop of Salzburg, was an experienced music teacher, and was also a composer.
Little Mozart began learning to play the piano at the age of three. Namely, his father began to teach him to play several menues on the piano. Amadeus was able to play them without mistake. At the age of five, he was already composing small compositions that he would play with his father, and he would write them down. Soon, as a child’s miracle, he began to visit the European courts, and his success became legendary.
