Happy 266th Birthday Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart! WOW! Yup, that's old, barkingly old. And, we thought Dad was old! Despite that, he is one of the most pawpular classical music composers of all time.

Samson, Abby, and I became quite familiar with the many music compositions of Mozart as dad loves to pawlay his music while we work on stories. Barkingly, his music is pawsitively pawsome.

Though we think Mozart wrote millions of compawsitions since Dad pawlays his music so often, he really wrote 600 which include 21 stage and opera works, 15 Masses, more than 50 symphonies, 25 piano concertos, 12 violin concertos, 27 concert arias, 17 piano sonatas, and 26 string quartets. This was considered amazing in his time. Some humans say, Mozart never wrote a wrong note in anything he wrote. He began composing and pawlaying the piano at the early of five. He didn't always have the luxury to spend hours composing a piece of music. He learned to compose where he could, when he could, even while his wife was in labor, he did bits here and there while he enjoyed other things in life. Barks, he had a taste for the most interesting clothing and items of his time too.

Paws, Mozart knew 15 languages! As a young child and as an adult, he traveled extensively which meant he would pick up other languages along the way. Barks, this to me is pawsomely fascinating since all I know is dog and a little cat!

Today's world of music can be attributed back to the pawsome skills of Mozart who influenced other composers such as Ludwig van Beethoven.

Happy Birthday, Mozart!
