Leopold Mozart

November 14, 1719 - May 28, 1787
born in Augsburg, Germany, composed during the Classical period
Johan Georg Leopold Mozart was born in Augsburg, Austria, on November 14, 1719, son of a bookbinder. On his father's death in 1736, he was sent to Salzburg to study for the priesthood. When he ended these studies, he found a job as a valet and musician in a noble family. He worked himself up through the ranks and in 1757 became court composer to the Prince-Archbishop of Salzburg. In 1747 he married Anna Maria Pertl. They had seven children, but only two survived. Maria Anna Wallburga Ignatia ("Nannerl") and the great Wolfgang Amadé Mozart. For the rest of his life he held his Salzburg position, educated these children, and directed the career of his son until Wolfgang's majority.

Leopold was a skilled composer of considerable imagination, good enough that some of his own work was confused with that of his son. Most of this music was written in the earlier part of his career; his composition trailed off as he devoted more of his attention to the development (and exploitation) of Wolfgang's talents. Another important contribution to music was his exceptionally fine treatise on violin playing, published in 1756. It details many things about musical expression and ornamentation that have proven invaluable to scholars investigating authentic performance practice. ~ Joseph Stevenson, Rovi

I think he was better than his son. Beautiful use of trumpet and horns.

Wolfy Amade(us) was definitely a chip off the old block! Dad wasn't too long lived at 58, but too bad his son couldn't have lived at least that long, too bad we don't hear more of Nannerl. Maybe she didn't compose anything. Anyway no wonder those kids were so good, Dad was. Sad about the exploitation part, no one is perfect...

Concerto for trumpet and string orchestra, so did the horn players wander in from another gig? :-)

German patriotism! At the time of Leopold Mozar's birth there was no Germany there were only separate prinipalitie s and we should look to see who owned Augsberg at the time. Germany was only an over-arching generality then.
