Today in History: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart born in 1791

Today in History: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart born in 1791

228 years ago today, the prolific and influential composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756 – 1791) was born in Salzburg, Austria. Mozart’s father Leopold recognized and furthered his son’s musical genius early on. At the age of six, Wolfgang Amadeus was already a sensation on the piano and the violin. At age nine, he composed his first opera – “Apollo and Hyacinthus.” At 13, he was appointed “concert master“ by the Archbishop of Salzburg, performing before European royalty. In 1781 Mozart moved from Salzburg to Vienna where he worked as an independent composer, achieving fame but little financial security. During the last decade of his life, he composed many of his best-known symphonies and operas, including parts of his unfinished Requiem. Mozart died at his home in Vienna on December 5, 1791. The circumstances of his early death have been the source of much debate. Mozart was survived by his wife Constance and two sons.

Today is National Violin Day

Today is National Violin Day

National Violin Day is celebrated annually on December 13th. The violin, sometimes informally called a fiddle, is a string instrument, usually with four strings tuned in perfect fifths. It is the smallest, highest-pitched member of the violin family of string instruments, which includes the viola and cello. The violin acquired most of its modern characteristics in 16th-century Italy, with some further modifications occurring in the 18th century. Violinists and collectors particularly prize the instruments made by the Gasparo da Salò, Giovanni Paolo Maggini, Stradivari, Guarneri and Amati families from the 16th to the 18th century in Brescia and Cremona and by Jacob Stainer in Austria.

Today in History: Jim Morrison born in 1943

Today in History: Jim Morrison born in 1943

75 years ago today, James Douglas “Jim” Morrison, one of the most iconic and influential frontmen in rock music history and lead vocalist of the Doors, was born. Morrison co-founded the Doors during the summer of 1965 in Venice, California. The band spent two years in obscurity until shooting to prominence with their #1 single in the United States, “Light My Fire.” Morrison recorded a total of six studio albums with the Doors, all of which sold well and received critical acclaim. Morrison developed an alcohol dependency during the 1960s, which at times affected his performances on stage. He died in 1971 at the age of 27 in Paris. Though the Doors recorded two more albums after Morrison’s death, the loss of him crippled the band and they split up in 1973. In 1993, Jim Morrison, as a member of the Doors, was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
