Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (January 27, 1756 – December 5, 1791) was a prolific and influential composer of the Classical era. He composed over 600 works including symphonic, concertante, chamber, operatic, and choral music. Mozart is among the most enduringly popular of classical composers, and his influence on future generations profound.
In July 2014, Steve Kaufman's honorary painting “Mozart
State II 1997” was accepted as a permanent
addition to the Internationale Stiftung Mozarteum, the official Mozart
museum and residence in Salzburg, Austria. Steve Kaufman is the first
American artist to achieve this prestigious honor.
