    Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born in Austria (not Australia). He was a composer of the Classical time period. Mozart was a child prodigy. His father recognized and encouraged his son's genius. When Mozart was 6 he began traveling with the rest of his family to perform for all of Europe. He wrote his symphony at age 9. Mozart spoke 4 different languages: English, German, Italian, and French. In the last years of his life, Mozart got ill and began writing a Requiem...also known as the "Death Mass". His student finished the Requiem because Mozart died. He was also famous for a serenade called, "A Little Night Music", which was written during financial difficulty.

    It is disputed whether or not Mozart's body is actually buried at this precise location. He was initially buried in a pauper's grave (where poor people were buried), and some doubt whether it was ever found again.

    Mozart's grave is always arranged immaculately with fresh flowers. There is a small, sad angel and broken column to tastefully morn his life.
