In Mozart’s short life he was able to compose over six hundred works, including twenty one stage and opera works, fifteen masses, fifty symphonies, twenty five piano concerts, twelve violin concerts, seventeen piano sonatas, twenty six string quartets, etc. He accomplished an undeniably large amount in his 35 years. Mozart’s name resembles pure musical talent and his legacy will forever live on in
