Mozart, Wolfgang Amadeus
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was an Austrian composer of the Classical era. He wrote and published music in different genres, including opera and symphony. The two string quintets K 515–516 from this period contain Mozart's music and are arguably his supreme chamber works. This genre obviously had a special fascination for him with its abundance of sonority and patterns of symmetry. The C-Major quintet (C 515) has always been known for its sublime emotions and, under the circumstances, it is tempting to consider them as elegiac. This quintet is the most detailed and finest of all its entire chamber works. Some of his most famous compositions are the motet Exsultate, Jubilate, K 165, the operas The Marriage of Figaro and Don Giovanni, and the Jupiter Symphony.
