Goethe Zentrum is conducting a presentation on Mozart as a part of their journey through the world of Western Music, on 5th Aug. The event is on from 6pm onwards.

Daphne de Rebello, an educationist and administrator, will make the presentation. Daphne has a Masters Degree in English Literature, a Masters Degree in Education and Sociology and a PhD in International Comparative Education. She has the equivalent of a Masters Degree in Music from the Trinity College of Music (London).

In 1993, she joined UNESCO as Senior Programme Specialist in Education. While in UNESCO, she served in the field and at the UNESCO Headquarters at Paris, from where she retired. Her project, 'Harmony Through Songs,' has received international acclaim. Among her post retirement activities, she founded a choral group called The Festival Chorister, in Hyderabad.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791) was one of the most prolific and influential composers of the classical era. He composed over 600 works, many acknowledged as pinnacles of symphonic, concertante, chamber, piano, operatic and choral music. Mozart showed prodigious ability from his earliest childhood, in Salzburg. He composed from the age of 5 and performed before European royalty; at 17, he was engaged as a court musician in Salzburg, but grew restless and traveled in search of a better position, always composing abundantly.

Visiting Vienna in 1781, he was dismissed from his Salzburg position, and chose to stay in the capital, where over the rest of his life he achieved fame but little financial security. The final years in Vienna yielded many of his best-known symphonies, concertos and operas.

His influence on all subsequent Western art music is profound. Beethoven wrote his own early compositions in the shadow of Mozart, of whom Joseph Haydn wrote that 'posterity will not see such talent in a hundred years'.
