Mozart's Genius

Few classical musicians would dispute that Mozart was one of if not THE greatest musical compositional geniuses that ever lived.  First of all, his life was so disappointingly brief.  He was born in 1756 and died in 1791.  So Mozart only lived to be 35 years old. 

In his 35 brief years, he composed over 600 masterpieces, including symphonies, concertos, sonatas, operas, chamber music of all kinds, and a stunningly beautiful final "Requiem." Mozart was a brilliant musician but apprently had a very child-like personality and was never able to manage his finances or personal relationships very well.

How he wrote music that has appealed to and helped so many different kinds of people over the past 250 years, we'll never know, but if you're looking for healing music, you can't go wrong with Mozart!

I was curious as to any advice about where to purchase Mozart piano sheet music? I've been buying music at my local music store for years, but it seems like the trend is to buy music online now. Where do you recommend buying sheet music?

These blog posts are so interesting, it makes you want to go and play Mozart to everyone and see what happens!
I think you'd also be interested in a recent book and audio on the man, by the Amazing People Club, http://www.amazingpeopleclub.com/?q=bioview/meet-wolfgang-mozart.html, which gives a really interesting insight into his life.
Keep up the great work!
