Wolfgang amadeus mozart – franz konwitschny - konzert für violine und orchester nr. 5 a-dur kv 219


After little more than nine months in Salzburg the Mozarts set out for Vienna in September 1767, where (apart from a 10-week break during a smallpox epidemic) they spent 15 months. Mozart wrote a one-act German singspiel , Bastien und Bastienne , which was given privately. Greater hopes were attached to his prospect of having an Italian opera buffa , La finta semplice (“The Feigned Simpleton”), done at the court theatre—hopes that were, however, frustrated, much to Leopold’s indignation. But a substantial, festal mass setting (probably K 139/47a) was successfully given before the court at the dedication of the Orphanage Church. La finta semplice was given the following year, 1769, in the archbishop’s palace in Salzburg. In October Mozart was appointed an honorary Konzertmeister at the Salzburg court.

Mozart was born to Leopold and Anna Maria Pertl Mozart, in the front room of nine Getreidegasse in Salzburg , the capital of the sovereign Archbishopric of Salzburg, in what is now Austria, then part of the Holy Roman Empire . His only sibling who survived beyond infancy was an older sister: Maria Anna, nicknamed Nannerl. Mozart was baptized the day after his birth at St. Rupert's Cathedral. The baptismal record gives his name in Latinized form as Joannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Theophilus Mozart . Of these names, the first two refer to John Chrysostom, one of the Church Fathers, and they were names not employed in everyday life, while the fourth, meaning "beloved of God," was variously translated in Mozart's lifetime as Amadeus (Latin), Gottlieb (German), and Amadé (French). Mozart's father, Leopold, announced the birth of his son in a letter to the publisher Johann Jakob Lotter with the words "…the boy is called Joannes Chrysostomus, Wolfgang, Gottlieb." Mozart himself preferred the third name, and he also took a fancy to "Amadeus" over the years.
