portrait of Mozart

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (27 January 1756 – 5 December 1791), well-known simply as Mozart, was an influential Austrian-German composer who lived during the Classical era. Having composed more than 600 works during his lifetime, Mozart's compositions had a profound influence on subsequent western art music.

In 1784, Mozart was inducted as a member of the Freemasons and was admitted to the lodge 'Zur Wohltätigkeit'.[1] He would also compose two pieces for Benjamin Franklin's glass armonica.[2]
