Mozart was an extraordinary musician who was born in a European country called Austria just over 250 years ago.
From a very young age he showed a special gift for music. At only four years old he was already capable of composing as if he were an adult musician and played instruments as complicated as the keyboard or the violin. A true child prodigy!
His father, who was also a musician, made an effort to teach him everything he knew. A short time later he took him on a tour of Europe to play before the most important kings and rulers of the time. Everyone was amazed at the genius of little Mozart and gave him thousands of applause and praise.
