Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. For many people, that name defines classical music.
Kids study his music in school and learn about his life. He was a child prodigy surrounded by the 18th century's wealthiest patrons; he composed hundreds of classical works by the time he died at 35.
It's hard to pinpoint why his music captivates us more than two centuries after his death. Although, his roller-coaster life of wealth and poverty, fame and bitter rivalries with other composers is certainly one reason.
However, a bigger reason for Mozart's enduring appeal is his music itself, which you can hear on streaming services like Spotify. In fact, Spotify is now streaming 127 hours of his music in chronological order.
