Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born in Salzburg in 1756, the son of Leopold Mozart a minor composer. Mozart showed prodigious ability from early childhood;  started composing at the age of five and performed before European royalty.  

 

Mozart was  honoured by Pope Clement XIV in 1777 with the Knight of the Order of the Golden Fleece.  Amadeus  composed more than 600 works. A part of his Requiem remained unfinished as a result of his untimely death in 1791,  leaving a wife Constanze and two children.


He travelled to London in 1764 and lived in Ebury Street
part of which is now called Mozart Terrace. Dating from the 1720s, number 180  is one of the oldest houses in Belgravia and would have been a semi-rural lodging when Mozart and his family stayed there
