About meI was one of the most influential composers of the Classical era. Born in Salzburg on 27 January 1756, I first became known as a "Wunderkind". Later on I settled at the Austrian court in Vienna. I died in Vienna on 5 December 1791, aged only 35.

Greetings Herr Mozart- may yout continue to inspire 1000 years hence!
Hello, Herr Mozart, love your violin concertos, but as you must have heard before, most people love all your music, even people who say they hate "classical" music. Lots of people pronounce your name incorrectly (to rhyme with "Beaux Arts") but I set 'em straight!

Hope to see you in the Afterlife.
Hello Wolfgang,
I invited you to be my friend. I'm not sure you can accept, but would like the idea...
This friendship reflects all the happiness and beauty you have given me.
Thank you!
Hi there,

Unfortunately we don't share any book (yet). But there is one interesting thing: I saw you own Ewald Christian von Kleist's "Sämtliche Werke". My "Sämtliche Erzählungen und andere Prosa" by Heinrich von Kleist comes close, don't you think? Just kidding. I haven't even read it yet. I think Ewald was his uncle. I found their family tree by checking the links on their Wiki-pages, see http://www.v-kleist.com/FG_allg/Zusammenhang.htm . Keep up the good work, I love your music, especially the operas and piano concertos.
