Happy birthday, Mozart!
Today marks the 250th anniversary of the birth of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Ask any random person on the street, classical music fan or not, and they can probably hum along with a Mozart song or two. His music is so intertwined with the world today that it’s hard to imagine a time before his music was around.
Yet, Mozart died and was buried in a mass European grave-not exactly a great final resting place for the man whose music would change the world. He died penniless and virtually unknown outside of his local area.
What does this prove? That what we do today may not even be recognized for generations to come. Mozart left something behind for all people throughout time to enjoy. What can you leave behind?
