Salzburg Mozarts Birthplace, Austria - Musics,Museums


No. 9 Getreidegasse in Salzburg is the home where Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born on January 27, 1756. The rooms on the third floor which were engaged by the Mozart family are now a museum with mementos, including the young Mozart's violin, portraits, a clavichord of 1760, a pianoforte of 1780, scores, etc. On the second floor is a fascinating exhibition, "Mozart in the Theater", with illuminated tiny stages. Mozart's father Leopold, who occupied the house from 1747 to 1753, was an outstanding violinist and music teacher, who from 1762 onwards took Wolfgang and his sister "Nannerl", five years older, on concert tours all through Europe, when the youthful musician gained great acclamation for his virtuoso piano playing.
