MUSICIAN OF THE HALF TERM
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Name: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
DoB: 27th January 1756
Died: 5th December 1791
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was an influential composer of the Classical era. He was born in Salzburg, Austria, and he showed great musical ability from a young age.
He became competent on piano and violin and he composed from the age of five and performed before European royalty!
At 17, Mozart began to travel in search of better work and more recognition. In 1781, Mozart settled in Vienna (the capital of Austria) where he achieved fame but little money.
During his final years in Vienna, he composed many of his best-known symphonies, concertos, and operas, one of which was unfinished when he died.
He composed more than 600 works, many acknowledged as high points of chamber, operatic, and choral music. He still remains one of the most popular of classical composers.
Music in Ghana
During Mrs Barnes and Miss Bake's visit to Ghana, they were lucky enough to experience a wide range of African music! Music in Ghana is used for a variety of different reasons, for example, when celebrating, when worshipping or when getting ready for a football match! They also learnt that in Ghanaian history special drums were used that sounded like roaring animals so enemies were scared away!
