Trivia Crack Answer: 41 symphonies
About Mozart wrote 41 symphonies
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart of the 18th century, was a highly prolific and one of the most influential composers of the Classical era. Indeed, Mozart is one of the greatest composers to ever live and breath. Since his earliest childhood, Mozart had already showed musical adeptness. He was already composing and performing for European royalty at the age of five on the keyboard and the violin. All in all, he composed over 600 works, including 41 symphonies, all acknowledged as being the pinnacle of concertante chamber, symphonic, operatic and choral music. His influence extends and pervades all of Western art music; even hallowed composers such as Joseph Haydn and Ludwig Van Beethoven created work in the shadow of Mozart. His style is qualified as being the archetypical Classical standard. When he was writing, contemporary music was dominated by style galant, a movement of music, literature and visual arts that was emphasized with light elegance, immediacy and simplicity. This movement came as a reaction to the Baroque style that was grandeur, serious, and all in all the exact opposite of the Galant style. Mozart’s expansive and varied styles came to overturn everything before it. He composed in nearly every style, revived the late Baroque complexities, expanding previous forms with technical sophistication, and a distinctively added emotional reach. Mozart singlehandedly popularized the piano concerto.
