Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, prolific and influential composer of the Classical period and Freemason (January 27, 1756 - December 5, 1791) was born in Salzburg, Austria to Leopold Mozart (1719-1787) and Anna Maria, nee Pertl (1720-1778), at Getreidegasse 9 in Salzburg, Archbishopric of Salzburg, Holy Roman Empire (Austria). He was the youngest of seven children, five of whom died in infancy. His elder sister was Maria Anna Mozart (1751-1829), nicknamed "Nannerl". Mozart was baptised the day after his birth, at St. Rupert's Cathedral in Salzburg. The baptismal record gives his name in Latinized form, as Joannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Theophilus Mozart. He generally called himself "Wolfgang Amade Mozart" as an adult, but his name had many variants. Mozart showed prodigious ability from his earliest childhood. Already competent on keyboard and violin, he composed from the age of five and performed before European royalty. At 17, Mozart was engaged as a musician at the Salzburg court but grew restless and travelled in search of a better position. While visiting Vienna in 1781, he was dismissed from his Salzburg position. He chose to stay in Vienna, where he achieved fame but little financial security. During his final years in Vienna, he composed many of his best-known symphonies, concertos, and operas, and portions of the Requiem, which was largely unfinished at the time of his early death at the age of 35. On December 5, 1791, Mozart died a pauper at age 35 in Vienna, Austria. He had become seriously ill in the fall and rapidly declined, leading to speculation that he had been poisoned. For the last seven years of his life Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was a Mason. The Masonic order played an important role in his life and work. He composed more than 600 works, many of which are acknowledged as pinnacles of symphonic, concertante, chamber, operatic, and choral music. He is considered among the greatest classical composers of all time, and his influence on Western music is profound. Ludwig van Beethoven composed his early works in the shadow of Mozart, and Joseph Haydn wrote: "posterity will not see such a talent again in 100 years".
