What Mozart said about Bach?
Mozart loved Bach’s music. He made arrangements for strings of several fugues from The Well-Tempered Clavier and composed original preludes to go with each.
In 1764 Bach met with Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, who was aged eight at the time and had been brought to London by his father. Bach is widely regarded as having a strong influence on the young Mozart, with scholars such as Téodor de Wyzewa and Georges de Saint-Foix describing him as “The only, true teacher of Mozart”.
Who is the best composer of all time?
The German composer and pianist Ludwig van Beethoven is widely regarded as the greatest composer who ever lived.
Who is the greatest musical genius of all time?
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is popularly acclaimed as the greatest musical genius of all time. A child prodigy who wrote his first musical pieces aged five, he produced more than 600 works before his death aged just 35.
Who is better Mozart or Bach?
I vote Bach – with all the usual qualifications. The two composers excel in different areas. Mozart is one of the greatest composers of symphonies, string quartets and quintets, and piano sonatas – all genres which developed after Bach’s time. He is also one of the greatest composers of opera, and Bach wrote no operas.
Did Mozart hate the flute?
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791) didn’t play the flute, and once suggested he didn’t even like it. Mozart’s over 600 compositions include two flute concertos, four flute quartets, and beautiful lines for the instrument in many of his other works.
Did Beethoven really meet Mozart?
While it cannot be determined whether Beethoven actually met Mozart, it is more probable that he heard Mozart play. Beethoven’s student Carl Czerny told Otto Jahn that Beethoven had told him that Mozart (whom Beethoven could only have heard in 1787) “had a fine but choppy [German zerhacktes] way of playing, no ligato.”
Who did Mozart marry?
Today is Mozart’s wedding anniversary. It was on Sunday, August 4, 1782, that Wolfgang Amadeus and Constanze Weber were married in St Stephen’s Cathedral in Vienna. He was 26, she just 20. The story of how they fell in love and eventually became man and wife would fit well in one of his operas.
Who killed Mozart?
But today Antonio Salieri is best remembered for something he probably didn’t do. He’s remembered for poisoning Mozart.
Why classical music is bad?
Classical music is dryly cerebral, lacking visceral or emotional appeal. The pieces are often far too long. Rhythmically, the music is weak, with almost no beat, and the tempos can be funereal. The melodies are insipid – and often there’s no real melody at all, just stretches of complicated sounding stuff.
