Mozart, Wolfgang Amadeus (1756-1791)

Salzburg, Mozartzimmer. - Mozart's apartment in the house where he was born (Getreidegasse 9, now a museum), where the young composer lived with his family until 1773. In the center is Mozart's fortepiano, built around 1782, on which he used to play during his public performances in Vienna; it was given to the Mozarteum Foundation by his son in 1856. The painting in the background was created by Thaddäus Helbling in 1768 and shows Mozart's childhood friend Karl Graf von Firmian. The musical quotation features the beginning of the lullaby "Schlafe, mein Prinzchen, schlaf ein" ("Sleep, my little prince, go to sleep") by Johann Friedrich Anton Fleischmann (1766-1798), which was for a long time wrongly attributed to Mozart (KV 350).
