Andante in C Major, K315.
By Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Christened Johannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Theophilus Mozart, he was born on January 27, 1756, in Salzburg.
His father, Leopold Mozart was a native of Germany and he also composed music,
When just three-years-old, Mozart would listen to his sister’s instruction on the clavier (a string keyboard instrument like the harpsichord or the piano) and begin to strike thirds.
Mozart began his training at the age of five and could play the clavier faultlessly and had already begun composing small snippets of music by that time. His father was his teacher, instructing him in languages and other academic areas,
He composed over 600 works that are catalogued in the “Kochel,” and numbered according to the order in which they were composed. His earliest works, K. 1-5 were written in childhood, and continue to his unfinished Requiem, which is number K. 626.
His first symphony was written when he was only eight years old.
Like many artistic personalities, his life was characterized by volatility, and periods of prosperity and enthusiasm were interspersed with times of depression and insolvency.
Mozart would be my favourite composer to play, he apparently disliked the flute hence, we do not have a great deal of repertoire by him unfortunately. We have 2 flute Concertos, Flute and Harp Concerto, Andante in C Major, 6 Flute Sonatas and the 4 Flute Quartets.
