At the age of five he regularly composed and performed, where his audience was enthusiastic about European nobility and aristocracy. At the age of seventeen he was employed as a musician at a court in his hometown, but as he was not satisfied with his position he made frequent trips. He never stopped creating new compositions.

Something about Burggarten
Burggarten came about after Emperor Francis I decided to use the space he had liberated after Napoleon's army demolished part of the walls around Hofburg. It was completed in 1819, but unlike Volksgarten, which was already open to the public in 1823, it was a private courtyard garden until 1919. What makes a large number of tourists rush to Burggarten is another monument - one that depicts the famous Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. A monument with a large 'flower carpet' shaped like a violin key in front of a statue.
This huge treble clef is made of flowers. This treble clef has a different color each season. Except when it's winter, there are no flowers at all. One can only see the void where it is planted in the form of a treble clef.
