Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, the story goes, was meant for music from the day he was born. He was born into a musical family in city of Salzburg, where he lived for the more major parts of his life. The city has two museums as tributes to Mozart, one in the place he was born and the other, in his residence during the latter half of his years. Though he lived for only 35 years, the impact this single man has had on the world of music is unarguable and his shrines attract a host of people on a daily basis.
The Mozart family relocated to this house from their initial tiny lodgings, and Wolfgang Mozart lived here until 1780. His father lived here until 1787, when he passed away. This house was inhabited by the entire Mozart family and a tour around the place will not only enlighten you about his life but that of his family’s. This is interesting, as it give visitors insight into his life’s influences. The house was partially destroyed during a bomb attack in 1944 and was reconstructed in 1996.
Mozart composed many of his most critically acclaimed pieces in this house, such as Idomeneo, the Salzburg Symphonies, church music and his early masterpieces in opera. The exhibits in the house include books from his father’s library, musical instruments, autographed manuscripts and letters. One of the rooms contains a multimedia show with personal details about the composer’s life, such as his travels across Europe. Every room is furnished in style of that era.
The museum offers a few unusual bits of knowledge of the celebrity of Mozart. There is a lot of debate over Mozart’s actual appearance and the authenticity of his pictures and portraits. The market value of his true image is worth quite a phenomenal amount. There is also a short film at the beginning of the museum tour which has been described as ‘interesting, informative and concise’ by past travelers. The museum’s fees are included in the Salzburg Card. There is an audio tour available.
