Who was Mozart?
Mozart wasn't just known for being one of the ‘biggest’ names in classical music, Mozart should perhaps be known for having one of the ‘longest’, but what was his full name?
He wasn't the only musical genius in his family either. Who else was remarkably talented? And which one of Mozart's family members composed a symphony using children's toys?
Mozart apparently transcribed a very famous piece of classical music having briefly heard it while at Rome. Which piece was it?
And how did Mozart die? Was it a plot by rival composer Salieri? Or was there another reason for his untimely demise?
All these questions are answered in our short, humorous guide, narrated by Classic FM presenter John Brunning.
