Son of an ambitious composer and violinist, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756–1791) was arguably the most gifted classical musician in history. His inspiration is often described as "divine," but he worked assiduously, not only to become the great composer he was, but also as a conductor, virtuoso pianist, organist and violinist. His oeuvre spans opera, symphony, concerto, chamber, choral, instrumental and vocal music. To pay tribute to this great musician, Shenzhen's Mozart Week will unveil its opening concert at Shenzhen Concert Hall this Friday evening.
