Court composer Vienna Friendship with Haydn Struggle for money Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart 1756-1791

Born in Salzburg 7th child of Leopola and Anna Maria only he and sister Nannerl survived infancy The Mozart Family Mozart played for

kings and queens. This portrait of him was painted in 1762, when he was six years old. Children during Mozarts time dressed just like adults. He just finished playing for Empress Maria Theresa of Austria.

Mozart at 14, 1770. As Mozart grew older, his reputation spread. Not only was he a gifted musician, but he could also

compose his own music. Able to hear complete pieces in his head Capability for output 10 years: 8 Symphonies 17 Piano Concertos

6 Operas Clarinet quartet and quintet Requiem Mass 11 String Quartets 5 String Quintets Many Individual Works Though it be long, the work is complete and finished in my mind. I take out of

the bag of my memory what has previously been collected into it. For this reason the committing to paper is done quickly enough. Mozart What a delight this is I cannot tell all this producing takes place in a pleasing, lively dream.

compositions. This portrait, painted after Mozarts death, is said to look the most like him. It was painted in 1819. Mozarts Music Simple melodies Contrasting moods Rich orchestration

Perfected the serenade Mozarts Music Favored the piano Concertos written for his performance Later symphonies considered his best Operas Ludwig Van Beethoven

1770-1827. Born in Bonn. Died in Vienna. Young adulthood Beethoven went to Vienna, Austria to learn more about composing when he

was 17. He had to return home when his mother died, and help raise his brothers. Ludwig van Beethoven Supported his family as a child Scholarship to Vienna

Played for Mozart Made the piano popular Second scholarship to Vienna Taught by Haydn I carry my thoughts within me long, often very long before I write them down. As I know what I want, the fundamental

idea never deserts me. It mounts, it grows in stature. I hear, I see the picture in its whole extent standing all of a piece before my spirit, and there remains for me only the task of writing it down. -Beethoven Beethovens Music 2 periods of composition

Napoleon in his study Jacques Louis David Coronation of Napoleon How humiliated I have felt if somebody

standing beside me heard the sound of a flute in the distance and I heard nothing...It is impossible for me to say to people, Speak louder, for I am deaf. How would it be possible for me to admit to a weakness of the one sense that should be perfect to a higher degree in me than in theirs. So forgive me if you see me draw back from your company which I would so gladly share. I would have ended my life. It was only my art that held

me back for it seemed impossible to leave the world until I have brought forth all that is within me. Beethoven I am resolved to rise superior to every obstacle. With whom need I be afraid of measuring my own strength? I will take Fate by the throat. It shall not overcome

me. O how beautiful it is to be alive would that I could live a thousand times. -Beethoven Beethovens Deafness Though born with a fiery, active temperament I was soon to withdraw from society, to live a life alone. If at times I tried to forget all this, oh how harshly was I flung back by the doubly sad

experience of my bad hearing. Yet it wasnt possible for me to say to people, Speak Louder, shout for I am deaf! Ah, how could I possibly admit to an infirmity in the one sense that ought to be more perfect in me than in others, a sense that I once possessed in the highest degree. He could hear the music inside his head.and he

wasnt bothered with other noises around him. He wrote some of his best music during this time. Patronage System Exchange of artistic services for A place to live A Salary

Clothes Rank in Society Depends on the patron. Servant to aristocratic patronage. Ruminate on... patronage and Haydn Mozart

Beethoven why the French Revolution and industrialization led to the demise of patronage. why less complex music is favored in classical culture. Patronage: a Comparison

Haydn: patron was Prince Esterhazy His Later Years He still composed when he was deaf..how could he do this? Haydn? Haydn was a traditionalist first.

Haydn believed that ISOLATION forces one to be come an original. He was isolated in the Esterhazy Palace for most of his career. His music is original. Beethoven will realize this pathos later in in career. My prince was always satisfied with my works. I not only had the encouragement of

constant approval, but as conductor of an orchestra, I could make experiments, observe what produced an effect and what weakened it, and was thus in a position to improve, alter, make additions, or omissions and be as bold as I pleased. I was cut off from the world. There was no one to confuse or torment me. I was forced to become original. Haydn

Patronage: a Comparison Mozart: [My pay is] too much for what I do, too little for what I could do. Mozart Patronage: a Comparison

Beethoven Beethoven manipulated the patronage system so that he could live more freely. Gave music lessons to wealthy families. Sold music to many publishers. Even when Napoleon was threatening the whole survival of continental Europeans, Beethoven had contacts with publishers in England who would continue to publish his music. Beethoven: Patronage

Invited into the homes of the aristocracy. Treated as an equal to the aristocracy. Believed that one must be treated as an equal if music is to be produced. Beethovens Contract But as it has been demonstrated that only one when he is free from care as possible can devote himself to a single department of activity and

create works of magnitude which are exalted and which ennoble art, the undersigned have decided to place Herr Ludwig van Beethoven in a position where the necessities of life shall not cause him embarrassment or clog his powerful genius. Beethovens Contract All Beethoven had to do was to declare

Vienna his home. It is good to walk among the aristocracy, but first you must MAKE them respect you.
