The Mozart Legacy

You can learn a lot about someone by what others’ think of them. Our Local Heroes ensembles including Kristian Chong & Friends, Sutherland Trio & Flinders Quartet certainly hold Mozart in high regard and you will find some of his most influential chamber music throughout their programs, but what did other composers think of this musical wunderkind?

Richard Wagner
Gioachino Antonio Rossini
Ludwig Van Beethoven
Robert Schumann
Pytor Ilyich Tchaikovsky
Antonin Dvorak

And it wasn’t just the other composers who loved Mozart. Visionaries of science and politics admired the great composer!

Albert Einstein
Eleanor Roosevelt

It seems that Mozart was pretty well-respected amongst his peers, even those outside the music genre. How do you feel about his music?
