Well… I mean… What can I say? Today we remember the birthday of one of the more supremely talented musicians ever to grace the planet. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born on this date in 1756, in Salzburg, Austria. He died a terribly short 35 years later, having already written over 600 pieces. There are many biographical inaccuracies in the movie Amadeus, which was responsible for an entire generation of new fans of the composer. But it’s a movie, based on a play, and never really claimed to be definitive.
