Yeah, too bad he was a heretic.Heretic or not, it's too bad he had to die so young (35). Imagine what impact he would have had on the development of Western music if he had lived even just 15 years longer.
I know eh? If he had lived as long as say, Beethoven (56)? Imagine what his 23rd opera would have been like, or his 42nd Symphony?
I fell in love with Classical music because of him.
The Lord have mercy on his soul!
Agreed! Lord have mercy on his soul!
I have to thank my Grandfather and Mozart for starting my love and passion for classical music. My Grandfather was a huge fan of Mozart's sacred pieces, and I will always remember the first time I heard his Mass No. 16 ("Missa solemnis") in C major (Missa aulica), K. 337 and Requiem Mass in D minor, K. 626.
